Introduction to CFA Society Japan


The CFA Society Japan is a gateway to the global financial community.  It was established as the Japan Society of Investment Professionals, affiliated to the CFA Institute, in 1999 and has developed its activities in education, networking, advocacy of ethics and best practices, and cooperation with other industry associations and universities. We are engaged in the following activities;

First, we promote the CFA Program, which is a globally recognized, graduate level curriculum that provides a strong foundation of real-world investment analysis and portfolio management skills. 

Second, we provide members and sponsors with programs and events for continuing education.  Leading academics and practitioners from abroad as well as Japan visit our office in Tokyo and give presentations in our seminar room. 

Third, we offer opportunities for networking to our members and sponsors.  Year-end parties, happy hours and receptions after some seminars help our members to connect with other investment professionals in a refreshing and relaxing atmosphere. 

Fourth, our cooperation with other industry associations and universities has developed rapidly over the past several years.  We introduce research papers and proposals on global trends of ethics and best practices prepared by the CFA Institute to other industry associations and regulators and exchange opinions with them.  We hold conferences with leading universities and organize Investment Research Challenges for students. 

You will find a variety of opportunities to connect yourself to the global financial community at CFA Society Japan.  Please join us and enjoy these many wonderful opportunities.


   Masataka Aoto, CFA,  President,  CFA Society Japan
