An English Guidebook for Foreign Asset Managers to Establish a Business Base in Japan

For the further development of Tokyo as an international financial center, the FSA has been committed to enhance transparency regarding the procedures for foreign financial business operators to establish a business base in Japan, including to provide more useful information in English regarding financial market in Japan.

As a part of this effort, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, with the cooperation of the FSA, compiled an English guidebook, which clarifies the necessary procedures for foreign asset managers to establish a business base in Japan. This guidebook explains process and requirements regarding registrations under the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act depending on business types.

We hope this would be a useful guide for foreign asset managers.
