Our analysts are among the highest ranked in the industry and provide comprehensive survey and analyst reports to investors in a timely manner.

Utilizing our team of highly specialized analysts, economists, and strategists, we survey, analyze, and evaluate various spheres including Japanese and global industry trends, listed companies, economic conditions in Japan and around the world, interest rates, forex, and credit from a variety of different angles.

Based on these results, we provide investors with information critical to asset management, such as forecasts and investment strategies, through sources including various reports, seminars/investor events, and media sources.

The FY20 conference was held online and we invited approximately 480 Japanese and overseas institutional investors and approximately 180 companies in what culminated as a very successful gathering.
