World Investor Week 2021


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.
Among its initiatives 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. This year, the JSDA created and distributed posters to member firms for their use in explaining the event to investors to enhance the public recognition of Securities Investment Day.


• 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 have created the following banner in Japanese, and requested our Association Members to cooperate in the World Investor Week campaign by widely using the banner as well.
