    The Financial Times has recognised Northern Ireland fintech firm, FinTrU as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe.

    In partnership with data provider Statista, the business news publication 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.

    Belfast-headquartered FinTrU works with global investment banks, designing technology-enabled solutions to help them meet regulatory obligations.

    FinTrU founder, Darragh McCarthy noted it is "a fantastic achievement that all FinTrU employees should be incredibly proud of."

    He added: "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'.

    "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."

    In December 2020, FinTrU was named as the 42nd fastest growing company across the UK and was the only NI representative in the Virgin Atlantic Sunday Times Fast Track 100 League Table. One month prior, the fintech opened its first US office in New York City.
