Tuesday 02 March 2021

FinTrU has been recognised as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe by the Financial Times and their Data Provider, Statista.

The Financial Times, in partnership with Statista, sought to identify the 1,000 European companies with the strongest growth between 2016 and 2019 to feature in their annual FT1000 Europe's Fastest Growing Companies League Table.

In the Financial Times - Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies 2021, FinTrU has been listed as the 483rd fastest growing company in Europe and 75th in the UK. FinTrU is one of 132 UK listed organisations in the FT's special report.

FinTrU Founder & CEO, Darragh McCarthy, said of the recognition "This is a fantastic achievement that all FinTrU employees should be incredibly proud of. The resilience shown by our people demonstrates the high-quality of our local talent and their willingness to adopt the FinTrU ethos of 'ambition with humility'. The Financial Times is a world leading institution and we are delighted that our employees' successes have been highlighted in this way."

Darragh added "Whilst managed as a profit-driven organisation, FinTrU has a social purpose to create high-quality professional employment. Recognition such as the FT1000, reinforces our belief in our strategy of continually investing in our people and their professional development. Our employees’ high standards in terms of client delivery have allowed us to continue our growth trajectory as a leading RegTech company in the Financial Services sector."

FinTrU Chief of Staff, Katrien Roppe, said "We are honoured to see FinTrU featured in such esteemed company with other businesses from across the continent. The people who work at FinTrU have witnessed an incredible amount of growth in terms of colleagues and clients in recent years and should be very proud of their success. We are delighted that their achievements have been recognised in this year's FT1000."

Katrien continued “Following FinTrU’s listing in the Virgin Atlantic Sunday Times Fast Track 100 League Table, this further recognition is a signal of intent as we continue our ambitious growth plans in terms of people, clients and global presence.”

In December 2020, FinTrU was named as the 42nd fastest growing company across the UK, and sole representative from Northern Ireland, in the Virgin Atlantic Sunday Times Fast Track 100 League Table. The company also increased its global footprint by opening its first US office in New York City in November 2020. FinTrU focuses on working with their Tier 1 Global Investment Bank clients to design technology enabled solutions to help them meet their regulatory obligations.
