BELFAST financial services company HNH is investing over £1.3 million to create 14 new jobs to help it capitalise on opportunities in the global financial advisory market.
The firm currently offers corporate finance, business restructuring, forensic accounting, recruitment and human capital advisory services.
It is now adding a transactions services division and a mergers and acquisition tax team, as well as further growing its existing forensics practice as part of the investment, which is supported by Invest Northern Ireland.
Commenting on the expansion, HNH Director Wayne Horwood said: “Global economic growth has created opportunities in the financial advisory market and we are keen to act quickly to take advantage of this.
“In particular, we are aiming to increase the number of clients we have in Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland and so, as well as substantially expanding our workforce, we’ll be carrying out a range of promotional and marketing activity.
“This is a significant investment for us which will see us almost double our number of employees.
“Invest NI’s support has been essential to help us mitigate risk and enable us to quickly put resources in place to manage growth and advance us towards our goal of substantially increasing sales outside Northern Ireland. ”
The 14 new jobs include a number of managerial and director level posts.
George McKinney, Invest NI’s Director of Technology & Services, said: “These new jobs will offer an attractive range of employment opportunities for graduates and experienced professionals and will generate £639,000 annually in additional salaries for the Northern Ireland economy.
“Northern Ireland’s position as a hub for financial services continues to strengthen and we are seeing both inward investors and indigenous companies like HNH benefitting from the local talent and expertise available here.”
