Research Activities

Seminars

JSRI sponsors numerous seminars to advance research on financial and capital markets. These seminars, which include JSRI full-time researchers as well as outside researchers and experts, cover topics such as the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act; securities taxation; management of securities companies; stocks, bonds, and other financial instruments; and capital markets in Europe, Asia, and other regions. Research results are disseminated broadly in written publications as well as on JSRI’s website.
In addition, JSRI hosts seminars addressing the concerns of individual securities organizations and summarizes the research results in reports to those organizations.
Research Exchange
JSRI’s seminars are attended by many researchers from universities and other research institutions as well as professionals working in financial and capital markets who use the seminars as avenue for a lively discussion.
JSRI also invites external researchers studying financial and capital markets to collaborate with and support JSRI’s research activities as visiting researchers.
Academic Society Support
JSRI serves as secretariat for the Society for the Economic Studies of Securities (SESS), a society of researchers focused on the theory, history, and policy of securities. In this role, JSRI actively supports SESS’s activities.
Cultivating Young Researchers
JSRI engages in a variety of efforts to cultivate and partner with young researchers, including inviting them to participate in seminars, providing a venue for lectures and presentations, and engaging them as visiting researchers.
Principal Publications
JSRI issues a variety of publications compiling the results of its research activities.
JSRI’s “IllustratedGuide to Securities Markets” Series provides overviews of securities markets in Japan, the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Another multi-volume series, “Historical Materials on the Securities Market in Japan” is currently in progress, with Pre-War and Post-War volumes already published and a second Post-War volume forthcoming that will cover the period from the late 1960s to the bubble economy. JSRI also occasionally issues stand-alone publications summarizing the results of its research seminars.
