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.

The detailed Portland stone façade with sash windows, originally inspired by the architecture of London’s Regent Street, has been cleaned, repaired and redecorated.

Anouska Streets, head of platform engineering at Currencycloud, said: “We’re excited to be moving into Hodge House and building our presence as part of the local Cardiff fintech community.  Cardiff, and Wales, are cementing their place as a hub for nurturing great tech talent and enabling the fintech ecosystem.
