Blue Speck Financial to open new facility at 10 Templeback


Financial technology company, Blue Speck Financial Ltd has decided to open its new 120-person facility at 10 Templeback, just weeks after the building was acquired by Benson Elliot.

The Bristol-born tech company has taken the top floor of the building, including a roof terrace, and plan to move in in March 2015.

The deal comes hot on the heels of the UK Investment Summit in Wales in November, where it was announced that Blue Speck planned to open a new 120-person facility in the city and create around 100 jobs by 2017, though it was not known where at the time.

This follows earlier news that the company had been acquired by one of the largest financial services groups in South Africa, MMI Holdings.

The company, which offers financial solutions, has taken 13,000 sq ft on a ten year lease joining current tenants NFU Mutual.

Toby Hughes, CEO at Blue Speck Financial Ltd, comments: “We knew finding Grade A office space large enough to house 120 people in the city centre would be a challenge so we are delighted to have completed the deal here at 10 Templeback.

“This offers us everything we need and more. The contemporary open-plan space will allow the business to grow its operation and provide jobs and income for the local economy, which we’re very happy to be a part of.”
