Why Relocating

In November 2016, Lombard Risk announced they would be opening a new Technology Centre in Birmingham, creating 140 jobs over the next three years and boosting the city’s credentials as major fintech hub. The company will be based in the Alpha Tower in Birmingham and will cater for the growing financial services industry in the city.

Why Birmingham

Being an international company, connectivity is essential to Lombard Risk. Their position in Birmingham offers them exceptional links to both their national and overseas clients, allowing them to make the most of the integrated rail networks and airport facilities in the region.

What Birmingham Has Offered Them

Mike Payne, Lombard Risk’s Chief Technology Officer, highlighted Birmingham’s strength in innovation as another key factor that motivated the move to the Midlands.

He added:

“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.”
