Fintech Square

Bringing FinTech Solutions into
the Japan Asset Management Industry

Fintech start-ups have been transforming the financial services landscape in areas such as payment, personal finance management and stock investment. This tide is now becoming visible in the asset management space as technologies which can enhance the competitiveness of the industry or can reduce cost are attracting attention. For example, AI helps asset managers use new data sources known as alternative data, make predictions or digitize reporting.

JIAM Fintech Square (JFS) has been introducing fintech solutions both domestic and foreign to the Japanese asset management community and has been running workshops to raise awareness of the benefit of digitization. You are able to access information on the showcased solution on this website. If you cannot find solutions here to address your business needs, we would be delighted to help you find them through the connections JIAM has been building with overseas asset management/fintech communities and foreign Embassies in Tokyo. Please contact us via our contact page.

If you are interested in having your product featured or in working with us to deliver a workshop, please contact us via our contact page.
