Japan FSA Targets Impact Investment

Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) has established a new Working Group on Impact Investment. The working group will discuss measures for expanding impact investment in Japan, taking into account trends and practices used in other markets. It will also discuss measures for expanding impact investment that contribute to solving social and environmental issues and creating new businesses, including start-ups. The work will take into account trends and examples of impact investment in Japan and overseas, including practices used by financial institutions and investors who engage in impact investment. The working group members will include representatives from the industry, financial practitioners and academics, with officials from relevant ministries and agencies serving as observers. The Strategy Development Division of the FSA’s Strategy Development and Management Bureau will serve as the secretariat. 

The practical information hub for asset owners looking to invest successfully and sustainably for the long term. As best practice evolves, we will share the news, insights and data to guide asset owners on their individual journey to ESG integration.
