400 jobs in financial services to be created in Limerick

Four hundred jobs are to be created over the next five years by a financial services firm.

Northern Trust, an asset and wealth management fund set up in Chicago in 1889, is to expand its operations in Limerick.

The company has had a presence in Ireland since 1989, opened its Dublin office in 2000 and it now employs 1,000 people across its two sites in Limerick at Hamilton House and City East Plaza.

Finance Minister Michael Noonan met Northern Trust bosses in London last year.

"The access to markets, the skilled workforce and the quality of life in this region, I'm sure, are all positive influences in this decision," he said.

"In the wake of Brexit it's important that we continue to add jobs to the local economy and, having met with Northern Trust in London late last year, I'm grateful that they see Limerick as a key part of their future plans for their operations in Europe."

The expansion is supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland.
