Ireland is strongly committed to being one of the best countries in the world for financial services companies to operate in.

Over 33,000 people now work in Ireland’s financial services industry, which the Irish government is committed to growing further still. In 2013, Forbes magazine voted Ireland the best country in the world in which to do business.

  • Ireland is the 6th largest exporter of financial services in the world and the 7th largest provider of wholesale financial services in the EU bloc of 28 countries.
  • Ireland is now a global leader across several financial services sectors:
  • Ireland is the leading global alternative investment fund administration centre, servicing 43% of global alternative investment fund assets.
  • Central Bank of Ireland figures show that the Irish funds industry overall is growing apace, with total assets under administration surpassing the €2.5 trillion mark in 2013 and the net asset value of Irish domiciled funds growing by up to 10% year-on-year.
  • 50% of the world’s commercial aircraft are owned or leased through Ireland and 9 of the top 10 aircraft leasing companies have operations in Ireland.
  • Ireland is also a leader in reinsurance and is the leading EU jurisdiction for cross border life insurance.
  • Ireland is the 7th largest location for issuing international debt securities in the world.
  • Ireland receives €83 billion in foreign direct investment in financial services every year - that’s 43% of the total across all sectors.
  • Most of the world’s leading banks and insurers operate in Ireland.

At Matheson, the financial services sector is the largest single sector of our practice. We work with many of the world’s leading financial institutions, including over half of the world’s 50 largest banks and the leading global insurers. We act for almost one third of Irish domiciled investment funds.

Financial institutions operate in a dynamic and rapidly-changing environment. To keep pace, financial institutions need timely and accurate legal advice from a broad range of dedicated experts. Our financial services teams have extensive industry sector knowledge and so can offer the best value for clients.
