Webinar: Financial Licensing and Passporting in Europe
October 29 / 10:00 am - 10:45 am UTC+1
Free Trade without internal barriers has made the EU the largest trading block and most active single market in the world. And Eastern European Countries have been seen as the gate to enter the European market for financial licensing. The region has become increasingly attractive for outside finance investors, with a generous regulatory environment and good infrastructure, as well as uncomplicated and fast licensing procedures.
Numerous Chinese firms have already chosen Eastern European countries for their FinTech investments in Europe. On the one hand, Chinese FinTech companies look outward for business opportunities as the country has seen the rapid maturation of several dominant market leaders, namely BAT (Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent), leaving little interest for smaller players, especially in the online payment sector. On the other hand, Eastern European countries offer international FinTech companies easy access to one of the largest and most dynamic markets for financial services in the world with 512 million potential customers, 23 million SMEs, and over 7,000 banks and credit unions.
How financial institutions and FinTech companies can make use of this environment and what has to be considered are the subjects of this webinar. Ecovis professionals will provide an overview of how to invest in Europe more effectively. You will get practical insights into licensing application, cost concepts, benefits, and potential legal issues.
In this webinar you will learn:
• Relevant countries as your entry-point with local strengths.
• Introduction into licensing in the EU and advantages
• Steps to take and “how to”
Mr. Kęstutis Kvainauskas and Mr. Adrian Ciurtin will provide you with unique insights over the correct licensing procedures and potential costs of investing in the European market during this webinar.
