Global fund administrator Opus Fund Services has committed to creating 100 new jobs at a second Irish site in Wexford over the next five years.

Founded in 2006, Opus Fund Services announced the official launch of its European fund administration business in Dublin earlier this year following a comprehensive application process resulting in authorisation by the Central Bank of Ireland under the Investment Intermediaries Act.

“County Wexford offers a strong pool of well-educated fund administration professionals and we are looking to speak with individuals that will thrive in a fast-paced business who are keen to join our mission to build the fund administrator of the future”

Opus has now selected Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford as its second location in which to grow and optimise its Irish operation. The company is locating in offices in Enniscorthy’s historic former court building.

The project is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

Winning in Wexford

“With the significant growth of our client base over the last three years, and the continuing strength of our new business pipeline, we are always on the lookout for opportunities to add experienced talent to our footprint,” explained Christian Pollard, regional CEO of Opus.

“County Wexford offers a strong pool of well-educated fund administration professionals and we are looking to speak with individuals that will thrive in a fast-paced business who are keen to join our mission to build the fund administrator of the future.”

The new roles will be for experienced financial service professionals and qualified accountants with a working knowledge of Fund Accounting or Financial Reporting.

“Opus Fund Services joins a growing number of international financial services firms that are operating in the South East and across Ireland’s regions,” said IDA Ireland’s divisional manager in charge of International Financial Services, Kieran Donoghue.

“Their presence will provide significant local employment opportunities and enhance the attractiveness of the region for further investment by the funds sector and broader financial services industry. I wish the company every success.”
