1 min read

TLDR:

  • The UK FinTech Mission to Japan 2024, part of Japan FinTech Week, will take place in Tokyo in March and will feature UK FinTech companies participating in briefings and networking events with Japanese government officials, businesses, and associations.
  • The mission aims to promote bilateral exchange of ideas and technologies between the UK and Japan, two leading forces in the global FinTech landscape.

The UK FinTech Mission to Japan 2024, organized by the Department for Business and Trade Japan team at the British Embassy in Tokyo, is set to take place from March 5th to 8th as part of the first “Japan FinTech Week”. The mission offers UK FinTech companies the opportunity to engage with key FinTech players in Japan. Participants will attend briefings, network with Japanese government officials, businesses, venture capitalists, and associations, and explore the potential of the Japanese FinTech market.

Both the UK and Japan are recognized as global leaders in the FinTech industry. The UK, with its financial services expertise, technological talent, and progressive regulatory environment, has emerged as a hub for FinTech innovation. Japan, on the other hand, has shown a strong commitment to digital transformation, especially in its financial sector. The mission aims to foster collaboration and exchange of technologies and ideas between the two nations.

London-based company Sends will be participating in the event. Sends, whose shareholder includes businesswoman and philanthropist Alona Shevtsova, is keen on exploring opportunities for collaboration with Japanese FinTech representatives. The company believes that the exchange of experiences will lead to the best solutions for clients and businesses.

According to Shevtsova, Tokyo is a natural partner for London when it comes to sharing and collaborating on FinTech success. With several leading Japanese banks and technology firms already having a presence in London, the two cities can work together to grow the FinTech sector in both countries.

The mission also provides UK firms with the chance to pitch to potential partners in Japan’s financial services sector and visit Japanese financial institutions for future business discussions. Apart from the Japan FinTech Mission, Sends will also be attending the ICE London Conference 2024, scheduled for February 6th to 8th.
