Focus on Japan

Luxembourg for Finance invites you to join its livestream session:

Thursday, 11 November 2021
7:30-9:00 CET / 15:30-17:00 JST

The session will be delivered with Japanese subtitles.

Japanese financial services companies are well established within the EU, have been long-term investors in the bloc, and a strong financial services regulatory dialogue is already in place. Recent trends however, such as Brexit, sustainable finance and digitisation, are shifting the landscape. Luxembourg for Finance’s next “Focus on” livestream will deep dive into how Japanese financial services firms are adapting and thriving in this new environment.

HE Pierre Gramegna, Luxembourg’s Minister of Finance will provide the keynote, addressing the topic of the EU post Covid. He will be followed by Keiichi Aritomo, Co-Founder & Executive Director of Fincity.Tokyo who will provide the audience with an overview of the developments in Tokyo’s financial centre.

The first of two panel discussions will delve into the recent trends within the EU’s financial services landscape and how best to navigate them. For this panel we are joined by experts from MUFG Asset Management, Tokio Marine, and Mizuho Trust & Banking. Our second panel of the day will provide insights on how Japanese FinTech companies are developing their business within the EU. Experts from Rakuten, bitFlyer, and the Fintech Association of Japan will join us for this.

The event will be closed by HE Pierre Ferring, Ambassador of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to Japan, who will touch on Luxembourg and Japan’s relations beyond financial services.
