The Future of Financial Centers

The Future of Financial Centers

29 November 2022

Financial centers – and the organizations that represent them – are spearheading efforts to strengthen their jurisdictions’ financial markets, business environments, and innovation ecosystems to enable sustainable global growth.​

In 2030, financial centers will be green, smart, innovative, customer-focused, digital, and inclusive, and will play a critical role in attracting and retaining the best talent.

​Leading the World Alliance of International Financial Centers (WAIFC), Dr. Jochen Biedermann will discuss about the financial centers and the continuing collaborations and sharing of knowledge as key to supporting growth across all sectors in the future.

He will particularly touch on developments in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area from a global perspective.

The Hong Kong government’s Financial Services Development Council (FSDC) is an active member of the WAIFC.
