Bruton appointed IFSC Czar

John Bruton is to take up a (part time) role of ambassador for the IFSC, promoting and representing the Irish financial services industry at home and abroad.

Private industry groups have pressed the Department of the Taoiseach's IFSC Clearing House Group to appoint a high-profile representative to promote the financial services industry as Dublin has fallen sharply down the ranking of global financial centres during the economic crisis. Dublin plummeted from 10th to 31st place in just one year, according to a global index of financial hubs published by the City of London last March.
