For the further development of Tokyo as an international financial center, the FSA has been committed to enhance transparency regarding the procedures for foreign financial business operators to establish a business base in Japan, including to provide more useful information in English regarding financial market in Japan.

As a part of this effort, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, with the cooperation of the FSA, compiled an English guidebook, which clarifies the necessary procedures for foreign asset managers to establish a business base in Japan. This guidebook explains process and requirements regarding registrations under the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act depending on business types.
