Aspira, the wholly Irish-owned Consulting and Enterprise IT Services company, today announced a new Dublin expansion, coinciding with ten years in business.
Named by the Financial Times as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, Aspira, founded in 2007, has invested over €1.2m in new services and opened their new Docklands office at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in Dublin.
The investment is in response to the Revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2), an EU Directive to be implemented by 2018. The PSD2 is set to revolutionise banking services by enabling bank customers to use third-party providers such as Google or Facebook to manage their financial transactions. Aspira today announced services specifically designed to facilitate these changes in the banking and financial sector.
This new Fintech offering will contribute to a predicted growth for Aspira of 128% over the next three years.
Director of the Aspira Docklands office Russell Moore said: “We are very excited to strengthen the Aspira Fintech offering with the expansion of our Dublin operation, which marks a period of continued growth at the company. Our new centre of excellence in the vibrant Docklands area will offer tailored services to the Financial Services and Banking sector, delivering solutions and technical expertise to address the regulatory changes imposed by the PSD2.”
Cork-headquartered Aspira, has reported significant success over the last three years, with accelerated growth of 65% in 2015 alone.
Commenting on the tenth anniversary, Aspira CEO Pat Lucey commented: “Ten years is a huge milestone for Aspira, and is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the whole team.
“We also are proud to say, having announced the creation of 50 high-level jobs in February 2016, the company has now filled all of these roles ahead of schedule, including several senior appointments.”
