The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG), in cooperation with the private sector and the national government, is working to make the Global Financial City: Tokyo Vision a reality by continuing to make the business environment more attractive to foreign financial firms.
As part of the effort, in cooperation with the Financial Services Agency (FSA), TMG created an English guidebook in September of 2017, and in April of 2021, it had published the first revision. The guidebook was created for foreign asset managers and Fintech companies, who intend to enter the Japanese market, to give a clear explanation on the laws and regulations related to the Japanese finance industry and the registration procedures as a financial instruments business operator.
Today, TMG is pleased to announce the release of the third edition of our English guidebook, “Asset Managers & FinTech Companies Registration Guidebook 3rd Edition.” This edition was created in light of changes in financial laws in Japan with an additional cooperating agency, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
For the full text of the “Asset Managers & FinTech Companies Registration Guidebook 3rd Edition,” please see the website.
