Financial services company Aon, has announced that it will open a new office in Cardiff with the creation of more than 100 jobs, with one source suggesting the figure might be as high as 185. The site will serve as the base for the company's Affinity brand. The decision to base the new office in Cardiff points to the success of the Welsh Financial Services Graduate Programme which has helped retain trained individuals within Wales and has resulted in a number of financial firms increasing their presence in the Principality. There is no information as yet as to when the new jobs will be filled.
