Description

Asset owners, the first ring in the investment chain, need new asset management approaches when investing in assets offered in Japan, an ultra-aging society under ultra-low interest rates.

Thus, this yearʼs Japan Investment Conference will focus solely on investment and welcome large-scale asset owners in and outside of Japan. The conference will be titled Asset Owners 2.0 in the Investment Chain and shed light on new approaches to asset selection, portfolio management, risk management in a low interest rate environment.


CFA Society Japan has held the Japan Investment Conferences once a year.This year, by welcoming CFA Society New York as the co-host, we will offer an invaluable opportunity for the members to learn best-practices and their rationale from large-scale, industry-leading asset owners in and outside Japan.

In addition, since the domestic and international asset owners will be speaking about their new unmet needs, the conference will help asset managers and financial data vendors to improve their financial products, services etc. to satisfy the needs of asset owners in Japan.

The conference will offer not only the unparalleled opportunity for the members to understand the needs of asset owners but also, the opportunity to network with other successful asset owners.

The conference is held under Chatham House Rule, where participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.
