Overview
Japan, the third-largest economy globally holds unique strength among Asian markets and other global financial hubs. Despite its distinct advantages, however, Japan trails other financial centres, especially with regards to attracting foreign talent and playing a regional role.

Against this backdrop, the Japanese government looks to re-position the country as a global financial hub, by capitalizing on Japan's advantages and at the same time by addressing existing challenges. FSA is spearheading this through a series of policies reform that aim to attract more finance professionals, address tax and operational challenges, and invite foreign investors and asset managers to play a more significant role in Japan's economic growth.
