Following our establishment of AIM Japan in December 2020, we are delighted to be fully operational in Japan.

Mitsuo Kojima, President, AIM Japan, spoke to the Japanese Financial Services Agency about starting our business in Japan and the opportunities in the Japanese market for impact investing.

In the interview, Mitsuo discusses our expectation that impact investing will be mainstream in the future. Japan’s social background and culture alongside the Japanese spirit of coexistence and mutual help provides the foundation for the strong support for impact investing.

Mitsuo also elaborates on our experience as the first company to obtain a financial business license (Investment Advisory and Agency Business) using the FSA’s one stop service (Financial Market Entry Office).
