Lombard Risk is developing its next generation of products in response to the evolving and complex challenges facing the market, and is bringing both product and technical development closer to its clients to ensure that they are always equipped with the most agile and effective solutions. The Birmingham office allows Lombard Risk to build a development centre within easy travelling time of its London headquarters and will allow the developers to work closely with our business experts.
Mike Payne, Lombard Risk’s Chief Technology Officer commented: “This is an exciting opportunity for Lombard Risk, an opportunity to establish a first class development centre using the most up to date technologies and methods. Lombard Risk has a long history of developing innovative financial software and the opening of this centre will continue that tradition as we build the next generation of our products.

Outsource UK Ltd have partnered with Lombard Risk Management from their initial concept to build a new development centre nearshore, through to the on-boarding of new resource. Jessica Holt, Director of Workforce Solutions for Outsource said “We have been delighted to work with Lombard Risk on this new development initiative. We commenced our initial conversation by carrying out an extensive UK talent map report to identify the right UK location, this extended to sourcing and fitting out a new commercial building with our property consultants Cushman & Wakefield, and then finally project managing a unique and bespoke recruitment solution to on-board the resources. This has been an exciting journey and our team of specialist technical consultants, headed up by Nic DeVito, has taken great satisfaction in sharing the birth of Lombard’s Birmingham team. We look forward to the ongoing partnership to support Lombard Risk’s growth over the next few years.’’
