Governor Pat McCrory announced Tuesday that Fidelity Investments will add 600 jobs in the next three years and invest a minimum of $8 million across its Triangle facilities, including its Durham County campus.

"Fidelity investments is an innovative company that has chosen to expand in the place and state where innovation thrives," Governor McCrory said in a statement. "Fidelity has demonstrated to the business world that North Carolina is the place to find talent, technology and an environment that appreciates business."

Fidelity came to the Research Triangle in 2002 with its acquisition of an employee benefits business.

The firm later designated North Carolina as a regional technology center of excellence, added a data center, built a customer contact center and is also home to Fidelity Charitable and multiple operations groups.

The company employs more than 3,500 people across Durham and Wake counties, with walk-in investor centers in Charlotte, Durham, Greensboro, and Raleigh.

Salaries for the new jobs at Fidelity, which vary by position, will have a minimum average of at least $100,000 per year. Annual salaries for Durham County workers now average $66,599.

New positions will include software developers, design engineers, systems support specialists and quality assurance professionals. In addition to technology jobs, a number of the positions will be in operations and client and customer facing roles across a number of Fidelity's business units.
