SPECIAL REPORT: What Japan Means to Goldman Sachs

Of course you may be aware that Goldman Sachs is one of the most influential financial firms in Japan, with leading positions and increasing activity in everything from private equity and principal investing to sovereign finance, energy trading, energy investment, real estate, derivatives trading and asset management.  It also has a top-ranked Japan equity research and economics group, and an investment bank that serves the Ministry of Finance as well as a plurality of Japan's largest conglomerates.

What's less apparent, however, is that Goldman is now as accepted in Japan as Nomura and Daiwa, as influential as Norinchukin and Nippon Life, and may have as many direct and indirect local holdings as a Mitsubishi or a Sumitomo.  If you think Goldman's high-profile ownership or tie-ups with the likes of Accordia, Hoshino, JHR, SMFG, Sanyo, eAccess, and Norinchukin are the extent of its Japan activity, our feature will reveal much more -- some of the many foreign clients it quietly serves in Japan, some of the lesser-known Japanese companies and properties it owns, names for some of its most active legal entities, even some of the new opportunities it's focusing on now.

Learn about why Goldman Japan is alot bigger, more influential, and more active than you may think.  Subscribe today.
