The Evolving Japanese Market – Outlook for 2022 with an eye on Japan post-COVID-19

SuMi Trust Group is returning for the 3rd time and cordially invites you to join their talk on the Japanese Market Outlook at a post-pandemic time.

After Japan’s Corporate Governance Code was first compiled in 2015, the second revision was published in July this year. This revision includes steps toward the coming market realignment scheduled for April 2022. How will the markets respond? Is corporate behaviour changing? This webinar will be held in 2 sessions, a presentation by the Tokyo Stock Exchange and the one by SuMi TRUST.

The Tokyo Stock Exchange, the heart of Japan’s financial market, will introduce these new rules, and discuss implications to companies and the market.

SuMi TRUST, as the largest Asian asset manager and Japan investment specialist, will share its view on the Japanese equity market in 2022.
We request the pleasure of your virtual company, on
