Enterprise minister Arlene Foster has welcomed news that a funds management company plans to create 46 jobs in Belfast

Up to 46 jobs are being created by an investment fund operation in Belfast, it has been revealed.

Heritage Administration Services is establishing the fund services company.

It provides administration to the private equity, property and other investment funds.

Mark Huntley, managing director of Heritage Administration Services and Heritage International Fund Managers, said: "Our strategy for growth depends on recruiting well-educated, high-calibre staff at all levels and ensuring that we develop our people to service the dynamic but challenging investment sectors in which we operate.

"Belfast can deliver on both of these requirements and the added support from Invest NI and the Department for Employment and Learning makes it a very attractive investment proposition for us."

The investment is being supported by Invest Northern Ireland, which has offered £690,000. The Department for Employment and Learning has offered a further £102,000 through its assured skills programme.

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster said: "The decision to locate here was strongly influenced by the availability of well-qualified and skilled accountants and other professional staff and the competitive cost environment, as well as the support offered by Invest Northern Ireland."
