One of AIMA’s longest-running events, the annual AIMA Japan Forum 2018 was held at the Ritz Carlton on 24 May 2018. Building on the success of our previous event in 2017, we saw our largest attendance yet at the Japan Forum with 360 present. The full day forum covered a broad range of topics from corporate governance, cryptocurrency, Japan’s private equity market, operational efficiency to even venture capital investing in space.

With over 40 speakers present, the highlights of the day were the two fireside chats - the first featuring Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike and Kathy Matsui, Vice Chair of Goldman Sachs Japan, who discussed the opportunities and challenges of re-establishing Tokyo as an international finance centre, and the steps the Tokyo Government is taking to increase the city’s attractiveness. The second fireside chat featured Francois Fillion, previous Prime Minister of France (2007 – 2012), and current Partner at Tikehau Capital, and Edward J. Rogers, Chairman of AIMA Japan, CEO & CIO at Rogers Investment Advisors KK. The two touched on the similar challenges France and Japan faced, and gave a broader view on the geopolitics of the world and the strategies to tackle global issues.

The AIMA Japan Annual Forum 2019 will be held on 23 May 2019 at the The Ritz Carlton Tokyo. Find out more about the event here
