BOSTON – Fidelity Investments®, one of the world’s largest providers of financial services, today celebrated the opening of its new regional office near Denver with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting event attended by Governor John Hickenlooper; Mayor Pro Tem of Greenwood Village Gary Kramer; representatives from the local business and nonprofit communities; and Fidelity executives and associates.
In January, Fidelity announced that it would open a new customer contact center in Colorado with the capacity to employ as many as 500 people. Fidelity has been hiring aggressively and currently employs about 200 associates in Greenwood Village in a range of roles that represent new jobs for the state.
“We welcome Fidelity Investments to its new home in Colorado,” Gov. John Hickenlooper said. “We’re pleased to see a national financial services firm like Fidelity select Colorado as a regional site. The addition of these new, highly-skilled jobs further boosts Colorado’s reputation as a highly desirable destination for businesses of all sizes in a variety of industries, including the financial services sector.”
“Fidelity’s decision to locate its new customer contact center in Greenwood Village is a credit to the vision of the city’s economic development leaders,” said Greenwood Village Mayor Ronald Rakowsky. “The Denver South region provides the talent, quality of life and solid reputation as a global commercial gateway that will continue to drive economic growth in the future.”
The majority of Fidelity’s Colorado associates are part of the company’s Personal Investing division. They provide assistance to customers on a variety of topics including retirement and retirement income planning, college saving strategies and management of investment portfolios. The new regional location has already become an important hub for Fidelity with associates taking their first calls on July 17th. In addition to the new contact center, Fidelity operates five Investor Centers in Colorado, including two in downtown Denver. Fidelity’s asset management organization also established a new sector investing division in Denver earlier this year. Read more
