“The access to markets, the skilled workforce and the quality of life in this region I’m sure are all positive influences in this decision.
“In the wake of Brexit it’s important that we continue to add jobs to the local economy and having met with Northern Trust in London late last year I’m grateful that they see Limerick as a key part of their future plans for their operations in Europe."
Clive Bellows, Northern Trust's Irish head, said:
“We have seen growth in the scale and operation of our Irish business over the years and the continued expansion of our office in Limerick reflect this.
"We gratefully acknowledge the support of IDA Ireland and our local partners such as the University of Limerick and the Limerick Institute of Technology, where we have strong relationships, and recognise the pro-active engagement we have with Irish government representatives, and the local funds industry in Ireland.”
