HedgeGuard, a hedge fund, family office and asset management technology provider headquartered in Paris, has opened a Dublin office following a London launch in January.
The Dublin office, located in the Silicon Docks area, will be headed up by Loïc Baumann, HedgeGuard’s chief technical officer, who is relocating to Dublin from Paris.
Baumann has a strong background in financial technology and is a Software Architect and a Microsoft Development Technologies specialist having received an MVP award earlier in his career with Microsoft.
Imad Warde, CEO and founder of HedgeGuard, says: “Ireland, and especially Dublin’s Silicon docks, is a natural next destination in our expansion, with its world-leading technology industry plus its great academic institutions providing us with an incredible talent pool of well-educated young people.”
Baumann says: “I am delighted to be spearheading the establishment of an office in Dublin. It has great potential both in terms of clients, who are increasingly basing themselves in the Irish market, and the team we can build to support our industry-leading client service and ground-breaking technology.”
