Capital Markets and Corporate Finance in Japan


Koordination: Andreas Moerke; Andreas NABOR (HWWA Hamburg Institute of International Economics)


Japan's financial system has been undergoing dramatic changes for several years. The so-called "Japanese Big Bang" can be seen as a milestone in this process which is not finished by far, and even the direction sometimes seems unclear. Questions as to whether and to what extent Japan is moving towards a market-based system, and how Japanese and foreign corporations in Japan should deal with these changes must be discussed.

The symposium is aimed to identify the current status of these changes regarding to the legal and institutional framework as well as to the implications on corporate finance. It will provide a place of exchange between international scholars and practitioners from the financial industry.

Japanese-English simultaneous translation is provided.
