As one project in the “Global Financial City: Tokyo” Vision, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG), following last year’s program, will continue hosting the “Tokyo Financial Award.” TMG has been granting a prize to financial institutions who provide and develop innovative products and services that meet Tokyo citizens and businesspeople’s needs and challenges, as well as financial institutions who work to promote ESG investments*.
We have asked Tokyo residents and businesspeople 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.
* ESG (“Environmental, Social, Governance”) investment 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 in the B-to-C services field, and 5 themes in B-to-B services. We are looking for financial institutions who can propose solutions to these issues.
For detailed information, please see the dedicated website.
*MaaS: “Mobility as a Service”
MaaS is a concept that views mobility as an integrated service for users, not simply as a means, but rather a single mobility service using one app to provide optimum means of transport from a place of departure to a destination.
Domestic and international financial institutions that offer solutions to citizens and businesspeople’s needs and challenges and who are offering services in, or plan to offer services in, Tokyo.
