Recent years have seen the fintech ecosystem in Ireland grow exponentially with household names making Ireland their home for innovation hubs and collaboration centres. And the numbers speak for themselves; KPMG’s Fintech Pulse H1 2020 report, highlighted a record period of activity in the first half of the year. Mega-deals secured by Irish founded Prepaid Financial Services, Payzone, and Fenergo, all contributing to the $328.6 million recorded in transactions and investment in Irish fintech companies in the first half of 2020.
How will Ireland continue to make its mark in this sector, will the talent pipeline stay ahead of the curve and is part of the attractiveness driven in wake of Brexit and regulatory demands?
