Centaur Fund Services, an Irish provider of independent fund administration, investor, and regulatory services, has opened its second office in the country.

The new office, located in Maynooth, is the firm’s eighth location across the globe.

The office will create at least 30 jobs over the next two years, and will offer client services to Europe and the US.

Centaur Fund Services founding partner Karen Malone added: “We are very excited about opening a second office in Ireland. Over the past year, we have opened new offices in the United States, the Cayman Islands and Luxembourg.

“We are delighted to continue this momentum and expand in our home territory. We moved our headquarters to Dublin’s International Financial Services Centre in 2015 to accommodate staff growth and the Maynooth office will also facilitate this growth as our client base develops.”

The jobs created through the expansion will be supported by the department of business, enterprise and innovation through Enterprise Ireland.

Minister for business, enterprise and innovation Heather Humphreys said: “I am delighted with today’s announcement that Centaur is investing in a major expansion in Maynooth. The Government is committed to supporting the creation of sustainable and highly-skilled jobs across all regions and with our support, through Enterprise Ireland, Centaur has embarked on a new wave of expansion that will come as a considerable boost to Maynooth.

“Central to Centaur’s success is its continued investment in Ireland, which has given the firm experienced personnel, operational excellence and the best client service in the industry. Centaur is a great example of a successful Irish firm that has become a global leader in its space.”
