Fintech link starts up

UK-Japan News April 2017

The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority and the Financial Services Agency of Japan (JFSA) will work together to promote fintech innovation and collaboration, City A.M. reported on 9 March.

The collaboration will help support and speed up the process for UK fintech entities wanting to set up in Japan, and vice versa. This follows similar agreements with Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia.

The UK has been credited with being the best fintech hub in Europe with fintech-related opportunities being developed by the Department for International Trade.
