8th EU-Asia Financial Services Dialogue

Afore Consulting and ASIFMA co-hosted the 8th EU-Asia Financial Services Dialogue on 28 March 2022 virtually.

The Dialogue takes place annually around the EU-Asia-Pacific Forum on Financial Regulation organised by the European Commission and the APAC Regional Committee of IOSCO. It is an occasion to discuss the opportunities and challenges in the financial services sector around regulatory cooperation between the Europe and Asia.

This year, we engaged in a high-level dialogue across two core themes and invited industry experts and regulators from EU and Asia to dive deeper into a discussion covering:

Sustainable Finance: Can Asia and the EU demonstrate global leadership in developing consistent taxonomies?

Digital Assets: The impact of regulatory fragmentation – is there a path to global consistency?
