HedgeGuard, a France-based hedge fund, family office and asset management technology provider, has opened a new office in Dublin.

Located in the Silicon Docks area, the Dublin office will be led by Loïc Baumann, HedgeGuard’s chief technical officer, who will relocate to Dublin from Paris, according to Hedgeweek.

In January this year, HedgeGuard has launched UK business as it begins the rollout of cloud technology platform and international expansion.

Imad Warde, CEO and founder of HedgeGuard, said: "Ireland, and especially Dublin’s Silicon docks, is a natural next destination in our expansion, with its world-leading technology industry plus its great academic institutions providing us with an incredible talent pool of well-educated young people."

Baumann said: "has great potential both in terms of clients, who are increasingly basing themselves in the Irish market, and the team we can build to support our industry-leading client service and ground-breaking technology."
