By Joy Dumasia
Ireland is increasingly considered a European FinTech hotspot with a deep pool of local expertise. The Irish FinTech ecosystem comprises every area of technology and innovation in the financial services arena, from payments, trading, and FX, big data, risk, compliance, and business intelligence to consumer-focused currency exchanges and peer-to-peer lenders.
In particular, according to Statista, the market’s largest segment will be Neobanking with a total transaction value of $32.00bn in 2022 and expected to show a revenue growth of 50.4% in 2023.
The following are 4 significant FinTech companies based in Ireland:
Fenergo is the provider of digital solutions for client lifecycle management (CLM) and digital transformation for financial institutions.

Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, Fenergo has offices in North America, the UK, Poland, Spain, South Africa, Asia Pacific, and the UAE.
IBS Intelligence also reported that Fenergo, a provider of digital Customer Knowledge (KYC) and Customer Lifecycle Management (CLM) solutions, launched its services in Mexico to offer solutions that address the increase in money laundering cases, greater oversight by regulatory authorities and over-reliance on manual processes that institutions have.
