Ireland ranked high on the list of the most preferred investment migration destinations in Europe following Brexit, according to updates from many institutions. Dublin is the most favourite destination for financial services firms moving jobs into the European Union after Brexit, according to a study by the consultancy EY.
As revealed in the EY Financial Services Brexit Tracker which monitors public statements made by 222 financial services firms, 36 financial services firms are considering or have confirmed relocating some UK operations and/or staff to Dublin. Of the 36 firms, nine are universal banks, investment banks and brokerages; 18 are wealth and asset managers; and 6 are insurers or insurance brokers.
After Dublin, Luxembourg is the second most popular destination for financial services firms and has attracted 29 companies in total. Frankfurt has attracted 23 companies in total, followed by Paris, which has drawn 20.
In addition, Ireland recently ranked second in the better-known “Golden Visa” rankings 2021 published by the citizenship planning platform Best Citizenships. According to Best Citizenships, Ireland moved up in rankings since last year and remains one of the best residency programs in the world. The demand for Irish passports is at an all-time high post-Brexit due to the country’s use of English, high standard of living and globally recognised educational institutions.
Now in its third year, Blockchain Ireland is hosting a week-long series of digital events to celebrate and educate the Irish audience on Blockchain, a truly transformational technology. This year the theme is: Blockchain: Foundation of Trust. Blockchain is most often recognised as the technology that underpins Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
Jillian Godsil, co-founder and editor in chief of Blockleaders says: “I frequently speak on a global basis on why Blockchain needs Women and I am delighted to address this issue on home soil. While blockchain and cryptocurrency are one of the most dynamic and exciting industries today, there is sadly a huge dearth of women represented in this sector. Blockchain is too important to be left to men alone.”
The Blockchain Ireland week runs from May 24 until May 27 and will offer digital events across the country covering social impact and public services, sustainability, start-ups and innovation, enterprise, developers and more. There is an impressive array of some X Speakers drawn from the World Economic Forum, the European Commission, Irish government, industry, academia, entrepreneurs, and the indigenous technology sector.
The line of up international speakers from Africa, Asia, Australia, and the United States will join speakers from Ireland to speak on use cases and experiences from craft brewing and bloodstock sales, to green energy and agri-food traceability.
The event is organised by Blockchain Ireland which is a non-profit organisation of state agencies, corporates, academics, and industry professionals, is working to share insights and expertise and to promote blockchain technology in Ireland.
