A technology company specialising in digital assets is opening a facility in Glasgow to support its global growth.

GCEX will create 26 jobs supported by a £350,000 regional selective asssistance award from Scottish Enterprise.

Part of the GC Group, GCEX was established in 2018 in response to demand for regulated and compliant exposure to the digital asset market. The company currently operates offices in London and Switzerland.

Authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, GCEX provides funds, brokers, asset managers, professional traders and banks with an advanced suite of integrated financial technology products.

Scottish Government Finance Secretary Kate Forbes said: “We are doing everything possible to help Scotland realise its full potential in an increasingly digital world. That means investing in digital skills, infrastructure and technology.

“The Scottish Government, through Scottish Enterprise, recognises the importance of supporting companies like GCEX to enhance Scotland’s expertise in that area – creating jobs and training opportunities in the process.

“This is an exciting time for our Fintech sector, after it recently gained accreditation as a European Cluster of Excellence.”
