Fintech agrees deal for refurbished office landmark

November 6, 2020

An expanding fintech company is moving to the newly-refurbished Hodge House office building in Cardiff city centre.

Currencycloud , which provides a global payments platform servicing banks, financial institutions and fintechs, has taken a ten- year lease on a 6,586 sq ft office suite on the fifth floor of the building.   It is moving from a number of serviced offices in Cardiff.

The move follows an announcement last month that AI imaging specialist, Intelligent Ultrasound, has leased 7,188 sq ft on the building’s sixth floor.

Owner Legal & General has refurbished and rebranded the building to modernise the 110,000 sq ft, eight-storey grade II listed building.

Legal & General was advised in the transaction by joint letting agents Knight Frank and Fletcher Morgan, and the new tenant was represented by Crossland Otter Hunt.

Andrew Mercer, Office sector lead at LGIM Real Assets, said: “I am delighted to welcome our new occupiers Currencycloud to Hodge House, representing our second letting at the newly refurbished office space in a month. Despite the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, these lettings are not only testament to the building, but the continued need for high-quality office spaces in excellent locations.”
