Bruce Aronson presented an update on corporate governance in Japan at Asian Investing Summit 2017.
Bruce’s presentation covered three topics related to Japan: (1) structure of the investment market—size and market divisions among listed companies and foreign investment in the various market divisions; (2) corporate governance reform, the main topic, focusing on implementation of the Stewardship and Corporate Governance codes and also on the new third choice of corporate form (company with a supervisory committee); and (3) the question of whether Japanese corporate governance is really changing to become more shareholder friendly.
Note: Bruce did not discuss specific ideas during this session.
