Competition to attract businesses and investors to the world’s leading capital markets has never been more stiff. A strong economy and political stability teamed with friction-less regulatory and operational environments are basic necessities to attract diverse businesses and investors. However the increasing number of financial centres on the rise globally underscores the highly dynamic and competitive environment. What characteristics are investors and businesses looking for when deciding on a financial hub? How do key markets like Japan stack up in the wider region?
As global economies continue to be impacted by the pandemic, climate change and geopolitical tensions, there is clearly no room for complacency. But despite the volatile market conditions, these challenges also offer new opportunities for those ready and willing to innovate: markets from London to Singapore and beyond have carved unique selling points by embracing fintech, tightening rules on Environment Social and Governance issues, and powering digital transformation. Japan has turned its focus to green finance and sustainable investments alongside regulatory reform, and initiatives to improve immigration and tax issues for foreign investors and organisations.
This event is delighted to host an online discussion examining how global issues from the pandemic to climate change are shaping the next generation of financial centres. This webinar will address the evolution of Japan’s position as a leading market within the global context, and the innovations and cultural shifts making Japan more accessible than ever.
