As one project in the “Global Financial City: Tokyo” Vision, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) is hosting the “Tokyo Financial Award.” Since last year, the TMG has been granting a prize to financial institutions who provide and develop innovative products and services that meet Tokyo citizens’ needs and challenges, as well as financial institutions who work to promote ESG investments(*1).
We have asked Tokyo residents about the daily needs and issues that they face in relation to financial services, and have created the themes listed below.
The selection of businesses in the “Financial Innovation Category” will start from today. You are cordially invited to make your submission.
Additionally, we plan to start accepting candidate businesses for the “ESG Investment Category” from the beginning of August.
(*1) ESG (“Environment, Social, Governance”) refers to investment decisions based on an institution’s proactive efforts in combating global warming, empowering women, selecting outside directors, etc.
The Financial Innovation Category includes 25 themes. We are looking for financial institutions who can propose solutions to these issues.
For detailed information, please see the dedicated website.
