Ipreo is headquartered in New York, but has had a significant operation in London for over 15 years. The financial technology firm has been in its Shoreditch office since 2006, and recently invested in a major refurbishment of the space. Currently over 100 employees are based in the London office, including several members of Ipreo's senior leadership team.

"Our City location puts us in close proximity to our London-based clients, who include many of the world's biggest investment banks, as well as giving us easy access to the rest of Europe. Our success in this region is a testament to the top tier talent that London has provided Ipreo for many years."
Duncan Phillips, Managing Director, Global Head of Capital Markets and site lead for Ipreo's London office, said, "As a significant London tech hub, Shoreditch remains a great fit for us.
