AIMA Japan seminar & networking: Charting the future of Japan as a global financial powerhouse



For further questions, please contact Kana Someya.


Join AIMA on 3 Oct 2023 in Tokyo for a seminar and networking reception that unveils our strategic roadmap for Japan's financial resurgence. Developed in association with our Japan IFC Working Group, this event is a must-attend for industry leaders and policymakers.

Japan has been proactive in courting foreign asset management firms through financial incentives and policy tweaks.

Yet, the road to reclaiming its status as a an international financial centre demands more—more openness, more commitment, and more action from the Government of Japan. This is not just an economic imperative but a linchpin in Japan's broader foreign policy.

Our seminar will spotlight actionable recommendations that could be Japan's game-changer. Expect an exclusive in-depth look at the paper's key insights, followed by a riveting panel discussion featuring industry luminaries.
