North Carolina's technology and finance industry is attracting a Wall Street firm to the Triangle.
The company Ipreo says it plans to hire 250 employees at an office in Raleigh by 2017. Ipreo got nearly $4 million in incentives from the state in exchange for meeting hiring and investment goals in North Carolina.
Ipreo president and COO Kevin Marcus says the growing firm wants to recruit analysts from nearby universities.
"We want to be able to attract talent and have a steady stream available to us," Marcus says.
