Message from the Representative

In recent years, Japanese companies have been forced to compete with firms around the world, including those in the EU, US, BRICS, ASEAN, and emerging economies. Japan has a strong competitive edge in the quality of its labor force, advanced technology, and know-how.

However, in the field of risk management, Japanese firms lag greatly behind their international counterparts and this is where I have grave concerns. The disadvantage in risk management is compromising the stable growth of Japanese corporations.

To date, I have worked with many Japanese businesses on their risk management. It appears to me that Japanese people are generally hesitant to imagine and prepare for the worst in advance. Perhaps this is partly to do with our cultural reluctance to use taboo words, based on a superstition that unlucky words can cause unlucky phenomena.

However, “bad things” cannot be wished away, and unexpected situations do happen.

The means for dealing with these predictable and unpredictable risks are accumulated as risk management knowledge and know-how, which business entities outside Japan actively incorporate into their day to day operations.

Our mission is to help Japanese companies master the use of risk management knowledge and know-how so that they can achieve stable growth.
