DENVER, Colo. – Any New Year resolutions to land a new job could be fulfilled by Fidelity Investments as the multinational financial services company plans to add up to 500 new jobs in the newly-leased Greenwood Village office.

The Denver Business Journal reported Monday that Fidelity has leased 100,000 square feet in the Fiddler’s Green Office Center and is hiring now for a hopeful opening sometime in the second quarter of this year.

“Colorado has long been a magnet for the financial services industry and these new jobs will continue to strengthen the vitality of our business community,” Gov. John Hickenlooper said in a statement.

The Boston-based company cited Denver’s positive quality of life, highly-educated workforce, and attractive business climate as top reasons to expand in this direction.

According to a statement made by Fidelity’s president for personal investing, the Denver hub will “ensure that the firm can continue to offer the highest level of customer service 24/7.”

Fidelity Investments has more than 40,000 employees globally to provide investment management, retirement planning, portfolio guidance, brokerage, benefits outsourcing and other financial products and services to more than 20 million customers.
