The Japan Securities Dealers Association (JSDA)

The JSDA has endeavored to promote medium- and long-term asset building and improve the financial literacy of individual investors as matters of crucial strategic importance. To this end, the JSDA has undertaken initiatives such as educational activities to expand the investor base, dissemination and promotion of financial literacy, and activities related to preventing individuals from falling victim to investment scams. This year, we are actively participating and cooperating in the World Investor Week campaign through the following activities:

- “Securities Investment Day”

We have designated October 4th as "Securities Investment Day" in order to get more people interested in securities investment, under which we conduct a variety of activities.

- Creation of a special website and requesting cooperation from Association Members

We have created a website introducing World Investor Week, and through it, widely disseminated the campaign. In addition, we created a WIW banner in Japanese, and requested our Association Members to cooperate in the World Investor Week campaign by widely using the banner as well.

- Educational activities for young investors

We have created a special website in order to provide inexperienced investors and uninterested people, particularly members of the young generation, with an opportunity to get to know about securities investment.

- Message videos from celebrities

The JSDA also posts video messages from celebrities for Securities Investment Day on a specially created website for the event.

In its role as a fair and neutral capital market operator, Japan Exchange Group has strived to strengthen and improve its financial and economic educational activity.
