Bruce Aronson presented his in-depth investment thesis at Japan Investing Summit 2012.

Corporate governance expert Bruce Aronson will go back to first principles to address the basic problems in Japanese corporate governance and the extent to which current corporate governance reform efforts, spurred in part by the Olympus [Tokyo: 7733] scandal, are likely to address them. In this session, you will not only benefit from Professor Aronson’s expertise on Japan but also his wisdom on comparative corporate governance. This will allow you to assess the Japanese model in the context of other governance regimes such as in the U.S. and elsewhere in order to gain a holistic perspective on the key issues facing investors in Japan.
