US finance firm creates 12 new jobs in Belfast

A US financial services firm is creating 12 jobs in Belfast, paying average salaries of £63,000.

MIK Fund Solutions is taking a plunge into post-Brexit Northern Ireland by setting up a software development and client support centre.

Invest NI chief executive Alastair Hamilton announced the firm's investment on a visit to its offices in New York.

The economic development agency has said it has believed "talent and cost" will continue to attract foreign direct investment into the province, even if access to the single market is lost following Brexit.

Mr Hamilton said: "MIK Fund Solutions is an exciting and ambitious business operating in a niche financial services market, with a growing reputation. This new office in Belfast will allow the company to extend its software development footprint and to offer 'follow-the-sun' 24/7 client-support."

The company is to employ 10 software developers and two business financial analysts at offices in Arthur Street. Chief operating officer Marshall Saffer said: "We are very excited about our new venture in Northern Ireland. Access to high calibre software development, finance professionals, and relevant time zones will help us grow the business."
