Futures Industry Association Japan (FIA Japan) is the only organization in Japan with a membership drawn from the entire cross section of the futures industry. Members include futures and securities exchanges, FCMs, security firms, banks and other users of the markets, as well as legal, technology and other professionals that provide services to the industry. We focus on both financial and commodity markets and we stay abreast of both domestic and international development in this global industry.
Futures and options markets play an essential role in today’s marketplace and dramatically expand and enhance the investment choices available to financial managers around the world. In Japan this industry, as well as the regulatory structures, is now modernizing as a part of the efforts to establish Tokyo as true global financial center. In this circumstance, the role of FIA Japan has become even more important.
FIA Japan was originally organized with the encouragement of the Futures Industry Association based in Washington DC (FIA Washington) as a Chapter, and we continue to cooperate as an international liaison with FIA Washington, sharing information about the global markets. Many of our members are also members of FIA Washington.
FIA Japan's mission is to encourage the growth and success of the Japanese financial market-place and its development as a regional and global financial center.
