Overview

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:
