At Bank of Ireland, we understand the needs of the technology sector. Along with our wide range of products and services, we have developed a specialist team to support our Relationship Managers.


What we offer

The indigenous technology sector (Digital/ Software/IT Services/ Telecoms) has enjoyed 10%+ annual growth over past 5 years. Revenue growth is driven by companies in all sectors investing in digital transformation initiatives. At same time running costs for tech companies through remote date centre hosting(cloud) and selling software online (Software as a Service) is increasing margin.

Bank of Ireland through its investment in sector expertise, including hiring from the sector and direct access to leading external experts through Gartner is well placed to continue funding the sector with growth finance. We have supported the growth of leading domestic technology companies, including Netwatch, Version 1 and Sysnset.
