This chapter meeting has passed.


Join us in Tokyo to support the launch of a GARP Japan Chapter, hosted by GARP and senior risk leaders, Mr. Akira Yamamoto, FRM and Mr. Stefano Spillo, FRM, with the support of local risk professionals. Ms. Minako Yoneyama from PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment) will present trends and challenges that global investors are facing when addressing responsible investing. She will share:

  • PRI’s three year strategy and outlook in changing markets
  • PRI’s focus areas: climate change and human rights engagement and initiatives
  • Asset owner trends seen emerging from reporting data

The evening will also include an award ceremony to recognize newly certified FRMs, SCRs, and ERPs. Following a Q&A discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to share best practices and expand their network with peers from the local risk community.

Registration for the live in-person event is open to the first 50 registrants. Since space is limited, we kindly request attendees who are no longer able to attend contact to free up their seat.

This event will be held in Japanese.
