Luma Financial Technologies, a fintech company with a presence in both Cincinnati and New York City, offers an award-winning digital platform that enables its customers, made up of banks, brokers, and financial advisors, to manage and sell structured financial products. The company has experienced substantial growth due to an increase in demand for its platform and needs more office space.
“We’re honored to be a global technology leader that is based in Cincinnati. Our growth is a testament to our team’s persistent and effective efforts toward building an industry leading fintech platform. We’re continuing to hire more talent to our team in Cincinnati, which allows us to expand our capabilities, and therefore our platform’s capabilities, even further.” – Tim Bonacci, president and CEO, Luma
After recognizing the need to add to the Luma team, the company saw Cincinnati as a perfect choice because of its rich talent base and low cost of doing business. Luma’s expansion will support the enhancement and diversification of its product line to include annuity insurance products, entering new markets outside the U.S., and adding the necessary tools to offer secondary market transactions.
Ohio’s ability to support fintech growth through technology and financial services assets is a major driver for the company’s decision. This includes the availability of qualified talent. An Ohio location also reduces capital spent as the cost of office space rent is ¼ less in Ohio than NYC.
