Shuya Nomura

The Amended Financial Instruments and Exchange Law, which will take full effect by June 2009, urges the implementation of advanced information management to prevent any adverse effects from easing firewall restrictions in each field such as banking, securities, and insurance. It is a big issue particularly for financial institutions who must develop a group-wide system to protect the interests of customers, including handling private information, managing conflict of interest transactions, and preventing abuse of a dominant bargaining position. With these rapid changes in the legal environment for information management required by financial institutions, panelists discussed the latest development and key points for practical responses.
