We are delighted to announce that the registration of Investment Advisory and Agency Business under the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act was successfully completed for Affirmative Investment Management Japan Inc. This was the first registration case for the FSA using the newly created Financial Market Entry Office (FMEO).
The FMEO was established by the Financial Services Agency (FSA) and Local Finance Bureaus (LFBs) in January 2021. The FMEO is a single point of contact for asset management firms newly entering Japan, handling the regulatory process from the pre-application consultation and registration to supervision after registration is complete.
We found the FMEO to be very professional, timely and thorough in their registration process.
You can read more about our registration on the FSA’s website here.
