Ipreo locates new office in downtown Raleigh

Ipreo Holdings, a global company that provides market intelligence, data and technology solutions to capital markets and corporate professionals around the world, will establish a business center in Raleigh. The company plans to create 250 new jobs in Raleigh by the end of 2017 and invest over $3 million in its downtown location. Ipreo plans to establish a business center that will both mirror its New York City headquarters operations and serve as a base for future growth.  Staffing plans include product development, client services and analytical functions.

Raleigh Economic Development and Wake County Economic Development have been working with Ipreo since April 2012 on their location decision. RED and WCED lead the local efforts providing community overviews, connecting Ipreo with other local technology companies to gain a better feel for the labor force, and facilitated connections with key partners like NCSU, Wake Tech, and Capital Area Workforce Development Board. RED and WCED worked closely with the North Carolina Department of Commerce throughout the span of the project. 

“Ipreo is just the kind of company we want to attract to North Carolina,” said Governor McCrory. “The IT and financial jobs that they’ll create will strengthen the downtown Raleigh corporate mix and be an example to others of the strong talent pool and attractive quality of life that characterizes Raleigh, Wake County and the state.”

One of the most important drivers for Ipreo’s decision process was access to top technology talent.  The company was confident that Raleigh’s labor force has the breadth and depth to serve their needs. 

“This really shows that our market is the premier location for technology and operations centers of the world’s leading financial service firms,” said James Sauls, Director of Raleigh Economic Development. Ipreo is joining other financial service firms with large technology footprints in our market like Credit Suisse, First Citizen’s Bank, Fidelity, Deutsche Bank, and MetLife.
