Panel Discussion Event: ” After Olympus….What Do Foreign Investors Want Most From Japanese Companies?”

Event Date :    May 28th Time :   4:00 – 6:00 pm 

Fiscal year 2011 seems to have been the year of corporate scandals and governance mishaps in Japan. As a result, policymakers have voiced serious concern about the need to improve corporate governance because "foreign money is deserting the market".

What about 2012?  What are foreign investors most concerned about? What do they want Japanese managers to do better – not only on the corporate governance front, but in general? And are they in fact deserting the Japanese stock market, or it just normal ebbs and flows we are seeing?   


To give us the answers, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Japan and The Board Director Training Institute of Japan (BDTI) , have brought together a panel including some of the most experienced representatives and advisors of foreign portfolio investment in Japan. Panel discussion will be moderated by Nicholas Benes, Representative Director of The Board Director Training Institute of Japan.  All discussion will be in English.
