Next-generation reconciliation software specialists, Aurum Solutions, has opened new offices in Braga, Portugal. This expansion marks a significant milestone in the company’s global growth strategy.
With an unwavering commitment to innovation and excellence in financial technology, Aurum Solutions aims to grow its international presence by tapping into the rich talent pool thanks to the country’s second highest rate of higher education students in science and technology, according to Portugal’s Institute of National Statistics, and the strategic advantages offered by the burgeoning tech community in Portugal.
Braga has developed a reputation as the innovation hub for Portugal and the wider Iberian peninsula through its thriving start-up ecosystem and world-class specialisms in medical technology and automotives, to name a few. The decision to establish roots in Portugal underscores Aurum Solutions’ confidence in the region’s growth opportunities and aligns with their mission to deliver innovative reconciliation software solutions across the globe.
“Celebrating the launch of our Braga office marks a significant stride in Aurum Solutions’ journey. It reflects our commitment to harnessing the remarkable potential of Portugal’s skilled workforce and vibrant tech ecosystem. This expansion not only strengthens our team but also signals our intention to explore and engage with markets across Latam, CPLP, and other regions where Portuguese or Spanish are predominant languages.”: Tiago Veiga, CEO Aurum Solutions.
Already making strides towards building a dynamic team in Braga, Aurum Solutions has successfully onboarded six developers, one marketing professional, and two consultants. The company envisions further expansion by recruiting an additional fifteen talented individuals across the Braga office over the next year. Bruno Barbosa, Senior Software Engineer will be responsible for managing the office in Braga.
For the past two decades, Aurum has been working with companies spanning sectors including banking, betting, fintech, asset management, hospitality and insurance amongst others in over 35 countries. These have included hundreds of household brands both in the UK and globally, such as Stonegate Group, Octopus Investments, Ladbrokes, HTB, Admiral and more, supporting finance teams and transforming departments’ data quality and operational efficiency.
Dave Anfield, Chief Operating Officer Aurum Solutions, adds: “Aurum’s strengths are the product/service – and, of course, our people. Over the last few years, we have grown quickly and recruited some fantastic people in our Reading-based head office – the Thames Valley area and Reading University have allowed us to recruit and grow some great talent. As we expand further, Braga is a great strategic nearshore location for us to strengthen and diversify – like Reading/Thames Valley, Braga, and the Minho regions also have a strong concentration of tech talent and higher education students in science and technology. We’ve already started to forge strong relationships with our team there and look forward to going from strength to strength. Vamos!”
Phil Hall, Executive Chairman Aurum Solutions remarked: “We are thrilled to announce the establishment of our new offices in Braga, this is a significant step towards our planned growth. It not only demonstrates our commitment to international expansion, but I believe it also shows our belief in geographic diversity and the benefits it can bring.”
