AIMA Japan Annual Forum
The 15th annual AIMA Japan Forum 2019 was held on 23 May 2019 at the Ritz Carlton Tokyo. One AIMA’s longest-running events, the Japan Forum grows ever bigger each year with nearly 400 attendees this year, and over 50 speakers. In comparison to 2018, we had 360 attendees and over 40 speakers.
Highlights from this year’s forum include an invigorating keynote speech by Jesper Koll, CEO, WisdomTree Japan and an insightful fireside chat between Hiroshi Nakaso, Chairman of Daiwa Institute of Research, Former Deputy Governor of the Bank of Japan and Douglas Hymas, Managing Director, The Bank of New York Mellon. We also had the honour of having Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike give a keynote on the future plans for Tokyo and U.S. Ambassador to Japan William F. on a fireside chat discussing his outlook for Japan.
The forum also covered other bread and butter topics like regulation, corporate governance, and operational efficiency, as well as popular diversification strategies, private equity, venture capital, and digital assets. More information on the 2019 forum is available here.
The AIMA Japan Annual Forum 2020 will be held on 30 September 2020 at the The Ritz Carlton Tokyo.
