Galway businessman Gerry Barry sold currency conversion business Fintrax to private equity firm Exponent for 170m in 2012 in what was thought to be the biggest ever deal for a Gaeltacht-based company. The former Fexco executive and his family made 119m including a big earn-out. The business was flipped again last year for 585m. Last year he was part of a 3m fund-raising in financial software start-up, Corlytics, which helps financial institutions manage regulatory requirements.
