Emerging Markets
at the Japan 2020 Olympics

At Eurizon SLJ, we have a passion for sport and competition and at the same time are motivated by understanding the markets, their economic and policy dynamics and their relations and interconnections with the political and social trends.

With the Olympics firmly under way, our new series of EM Insights aims to be a companion to the Olympic & Paralympic Games.
