Michael D'Arcy, Ireland’s Minister of State at the Department of Finance, commented: 
“I am delighted to see Global Shares, a company backed by Enterprise Ireland, attract a significant investment from Motive Partners. Furthermore, we are pleased that the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund’s (ISIF) partnership with Motive is helping support strategic sectors of the Irish economy, demonstrating the value of a Sovereign Wealth Fund with a development mandate. It is a great example of how an Irish company supported early on in its development can go on to create high quality technology and financial services jobs at home and scale into an international success story. I look forward to watching their continued growth and success, proving Ireland’s FinTech sector is capable of creating great companies who can win blue-chip customers on the global stage.”
