The forum's mission is to bring the most important market players, regulators and consultants together around the same table to discuss the most pressing issues and develop effective solutions.
Cyprus is a globally recognised financial and business center due to its regulatory framework and transparent tax system. As an industrialized jurisdiction, Cyprus is rightly one of the most advanced markets in Europe, both from a regulatory standpoint and in terms of the introduction of innovative financial services. The government has a strong focus on innovation and research, which is closely linked to the development of fintech, and participates in many international blockchain initiatives. The Annual Financial Markets Forum in Cyprus will discuss the development of markets in an era of de-globalisation, digitalisation and the use of big data in the financial sector, as well as the ESG agenda and sustainable finance.
One of the key themes of the forum is attracting investment and companies to Cyprus. The island is located at the crossroads of three continents - Europe, Africa and Asia. This strategic location makes the country an extremely attractive jurisdiction for investors from the EU, Asia and the Middle East.
The forum is planned to be held annually, which will help financial market participants to systematically exchange experiences and address specific industry issues.
