 The Financial Market Entry Consultation Desk
-The FSA and Tokyo Metropolitan Government welcome foreign financial business operators’ new entry that contributes to strengthening Japan’s financial market -

With the commitment to further develop Tokyo as an international financial center, the FSA launched the “Financial Market Entry Consultation Desk” to give advice on Japan’s financial regulations to foreign financial business operators (e.g. asset management firms) which plan to establish a business base in Japan.

The Financial Market Entry Consultation Desk welcomes any inquiry from such foreign financial business operators regarding registration procedures that are necessary to practice in Japan’s financial market.

The FSA’s Financial Market Entry Consultation Desk closely cooperates with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s “Financial One-Stop Support Service” to support foreign financial business operators planning to set up offices in Tokyo. With this joint consultation scheme, consulters benefit not only from hands-on guidance by the FSA, but also from a variety of support menus provided by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government including advice on business incorporation, living support, etc.
