An international finance company will create up to 100 jobs at its new global headquarters in Dublin, the firm announced today.
Aztec Money plans to fill multilingual roles in the areas of data processing, marketing, sales and IT within the next two years.
The company specialises in giving small and medium size businesses and corporates access to a network of institutional investors interested in purchasing invoices, providing instant cash flow.
Jobs minister Richard Bruton said improving access to finance is a key part of the Government’s plans for jobs and growth.
“Since taking office, we have put in place new funding mechanisms that will make available an additional 2 billion euro in credit for Irish businesses,” said Mr Bruton.
“Today, Aztec Money are announcing that they are establishing an innovative new service for Irish SMEs to help improve cash flow, which will be a very welcome addition to the support available to job-creating businesses here.”
The jobs will be based at George’s Quay in Dublin.
“We in Government will continue working hard to ensure that we can attract further international investment to Ireland and help create the jobs we need,” the minister added.
Oliver Gabbay, chief operating officer of Aztec Money, said Ireland was an obvious choice for the new headquarters because of the opportunities to develop the business.
“Our product will provide exporting SMEs with access to a global network of institutional investors who can purchase invoices, thus providing these companies with immediate access to cash flow,” he said.
“Our ability to raise significant funding to develop this company is testament to the strength of the product concept and the excellent opportunity for us to build an infrastructure in a number of geographies across Europe and beyond.”
