Founder and chief executive Darragh McCarthy, 47, had worked as an investment banker for almost 20 years before setting up Belfast-based FinTrU in 2013. In the aftermath of the financial crisis, he had seen the need for a consultancy to help global banks adhere to stricter regulations, including anti-money laundering rules. The company, which offers a range of legal, regulatory and consulting services, saw sales jump to £17m in the year to March. Since then it has supported clients as they navigate heightened market volatility, hired more than 250 new staff through video interviews, and in November opened an office in New York.
