Administrator Citco To Cut Jobs

Oct 30 2008 | 8:49am ET

Instead of adding jobs at its Cork office, Citco will be slashing jobs in Dublin and Cork. The firm told employees in Dublin that it will begin the layoffs next month. Citco employs about 1,000 people on the Emerald Isle.

Last February, Citco announced plans to add 150 jobs to its Cork hedge fund administration operation over the following three years.
