Noriyuki Morimoto presented his in-depth investment thesis on New Concept of Fiduciary Duty in Japan’s Fund Industry at Asian Investing Summit 2015.

In September 2014, the Financial Services Agency in Japan announced the Financial Monitoring Policy. In this new policy, the authority introduced “Fiduciary Duty”, which is totally new to the Japanese asset management business. The scope of this drastic action could be quite broad and deep, and could change the whole business structure. Noriyuki Morimoto discusses the implications of this new regulatory framework.
