IR solutions English language IR support

As many Japanese companies globalize, the Japanese government is attempting to improve corporate governance by encouraging corporate disclosure in English to induce investment funds to flow into Japan from abroad.
The movement for companies to provide clearer information to investors is gathering pace. We have entered a new stage for Japanese companies in terms of their responsibility to explain themselves and to disclose information to audiences overseas.

We are using our position as a company that specializes in supporting disclosure to provide clients with optimal disclosure solutions in English, ranging from English disclosure documentation to English IR materials that are based on analysts' reports and the "IR Best Practice Guidelines".
