With all the talk of Brexit stifling investment, it was particularly encouraging to attend the opening and witness a leading player in the finance and banking sector investing in a new software development facility in Birmingham (UK).
Lombard Risk, a leading provider of integrated regulatory reporting and collateral management solutions for the financial services industry, has created a new technology centre to support the development of the next generation of Lombard Risk products.
The new centre officially opened on 23rd November, is located at The Alpha Tower, Birmingham, a landmark Grade II listed building. It represents an exciting new stage of growth for Lombard Risk as the company looks to decrease its time to market and bring technology closer to its clients. Lombard Risk is creating a team of developers and technical analysts drawn from Birmingham and the surrounding area. The centre will boast modern facilities and support a collaborative and creative working environment.
The Technology Centre will play a vital role in Lombard Risk’s product development and will assist in accelerating the roadmap for delivery to clients.
Mike Payne, Lombard Risk’s Chief Technology Officer commented: “This is an exciting opportunity for Lombard Risk to establish a first class development centre using the most up to date technologies and methods. Lombard Risk has a long history of developing innovative financial software and the opening of this centre will continue that tradition as we build the next generation of our products.
“Lombard Risk aims to be the employer of choice in Birmingham developing first class software demanded by our clients. Birmingham is a fantastic city with world class universities nearby and a rich pool of talented technologists, it was an obvious place for us to invest in.”
