SFM Japan Working Group

The Network for Sustainable Financial Markets (SFM) is pleased to announce that it launched the Japan Working Group.

Japan is in the midst of rapid improvement in the stewardship activities including release of the Ito Review, the Japan's Stewardship Code with over 150 signatories and continuing discussion of the Corporate Governance Code and governance reform of the GPIF (Government Pension Investment Fund), the world-largest public pension fund.

SFM has submitted its response for the Ito Review and the Japan's Stewardship Code. The Working Group will develop the engagement further with Japanese government and financial market, and contribute to the ongoing enhancement.

The details of the Working Group are available in English and Japanese.
