We have published the "Guidebook for Registration of Investment Management Business and Other Financial Instruments Businesses" to provide information on registration procedures for financial instruments businesses, including investment management businesses, and to reduce the burden on overseas asset managers and other financial businesses when entering Japan. In this guidebook, the registration types required for each major business type related to the asset management business are explained in an easy-to-understand manner, using flowcharts and illustrations. An outline of the registration approval process and requirements is also explained.
