EPA Helpdesk Webinar 19: Services & Finances
07-04-20 | 10:30 - 11:30 AM CET
How does the EU-Japan EPA impact the various segments of the finance industry?
The financial industry consists of a broad taxonomy of diverse market actors, large and small. While the industry consists of many different segments, the language of the EU-Japan EPA is written in such a way as to be broadly inclusive of the industry as a whole. The EPA covers market actors ranging from fintech start-ups, to professional financial advisors, to the blockchain & cryptocurrency and the peer-to-peer & crowdfunding landscapes.
This webinar is part of a series of webinars by the EU-Japan EPA Helpdesk. Each webinar will address a different topic or sector and will look at the changes the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement will make and the opportunities it will create. Each webinar will be accompanied by a factsheet and a practical guide. For more information on the EPA Helpdesk please click here.
