Financial Services

We are all familiar with the high street banks and building societies visible in towns and cities around the country, but Ireland is also recognised internationally as a centre for commercial financial services.

Financial services are the broader range of supports and services the financial sector requires to manage money and facilitate transactions. These include fund management and administration, portfolio management, underwriting, financial advice and credit card companies.

A seemingly niche financial series sector with a particularly large presence in Ireland is aircraft leasing and financing.
