The new investment in Dublin is to support the further development of a transformative core insurance product suite which FINEOS will sell to new and existing customers to increase its international footprint and increase new export business. FINEOS has over 60 insurance carriers and government accident compensation agencies as customers with 6 of the top 20 Group Life & Health insurance carriers using the FINEOS core software today.
Making the announcement Minister Bruton said: “Software is a key sector we are targeting as part of our Action Plans for Jobs, and in particular we have sought to support the growth of a strong cluster of Irish companies in this area. In recent years we have seen a strong overall performance in this sector. FINEOS is a great example of an Irish company, with a world-class product offering, performing strongly in highly competitive global markets and employing large numbers of high skilled people in Dublin. Today’s announcement is a great boost for Dublin. ”
