Angelos G. Paphitis to Speak During a Panel Discussion
At this year’s event, Founder and Managing Partner of AGP, Angelos G. Paphitis, will be joining a host of experts in the industry in a panel discussion on Data, Leverage, Licensing: Global Regulatory Outlook, on October 5, 2021. The 45-minute-long discussion will focus on regulation and compliance issues in the financial markets and their implications for companies and market participants.
Digital technologies have contributed immensely to growth and brand awareness for financial services companies worldwide. With the ability to transfer funds electronically, across time zones and geographies, they have been able to expand their global footprint in recent years. They now also have access to a huge volume of consumer data, which has opened up a myriad of compliance issues.
With more widespread data transmission across borders, organisations now need to comply with disparate regulations across jurisdictions. This requires enhanced controls and proactive steps, as the data regulatory landscape is evolving at a pace never seen before. Addressing data residency, privacy and protection requires an understanding of both domestic and international law.
Angelos G. Paphitis currently heads AGP’s Commercial & Corporate Practice and has vast experience in representing corporate clients in complex and high-profile cases, both in Cyprus as well as for International Arbitration. He also represents local and international investment firms and payments providers, as a lead member of AGP’s Financial Regulation & Advisory Practice.
With numerous years of experience in international tax, corporate structuring, foreign investments, real estate, and finance & banking law, Mr. Paphitis’ take on the subject can offer deep insights for participating institutions.
