11th FISCO IR Forum

Investor relations (IR) activities in Japanese corporations have reached a turning point.

The IR industry seeks to promote IR activities that are suitable for the coming era. Today, people are reaffirming the importance of creating relationships of mutual trust and constructive dialogue between investors and corporations. They are reexamining conventional corporate IR activities from various perspectives. Meanwhile, Japanese corporations seek to make corporate disclosures that communicate their presence and medium- and long-term value, and to build better relationships with investors and other stakeholders.

Starting from this awareness of issues, FISCO IR Ltd. invites experts from various specialist fields to attend FISCO Forums, which serve as experimental forums where they join in numerous free discussions to examine issues and strategies for Japanese corporations seeking to increase their corporate value over the medium and long term and accurately communicate their real strengths.

For the 11th FISCO IR Forum, we have invited Commons Asset Management Inc. Chairman Ken Shibusawa to give a speech on the topic of “Dialogue between Investors and Corporations Aiming for Sustainable Value Creation.”

Please look forward to the activities through these forums.
