In July’s edition of FinTech Magazine we broke down our Top 10 Global Fintech Hubs. In at number 10 is Dublin...

Ranked 26th overall in Findexable’s listing, Dublin’s fintech reputation is expanding rapidly. The city is known as a fertile breeding ground for innovative organisations involved in payments, regtech, lending, funding and trading, and financial management.  

Dublin also hosts several startup accelerators and incubator programmes, such as the Aon Centre for Innovation and Analytics, Citi Innovation Lab, the Bank of Ireland’s Startlab, the Central Bank of Ireland’s The Innovation Hub and Mastercard’s Tech Hub. 

"Our Dublin Tech Hub is an innovation engine for our company across Europe and beyond, and we’re delighted to be expanding our technology footprint in the city. Our new campus will help us continue to attract the best and brightest tech talent, so that we stay on the forefront of emerging tech trends and are well positioned to forge the future of digital commerce across the globe.” - Ed McLaughlin, President of Mastercard Operations and Technology, Mastercard 

In short, the city provides a thriving ecosystem for financial services technologies that are propelling it to the highest tier of global fintech hubs.
