Sismo Raises Interest Among Japanese AM

French Fintech Success Stories – On 5-7 December, Valphi was in Japan to introduce Sismo to Japanese asset managers with the French Tech Tour.

We were invited by Paris Europlace, BPI France and the French research cluster Finance Innovation in Tokyo and Osaka to meet Japanese counterparts and discuss French Fintech success stories. Serge seized the opportunity to demo Sismo to various teams of Japanese equity AM investors through meetings neatly organized by the French Tech network in Tokyo. AM professionals expressed deep interest for Sismo which seemingly would fit well among the innovative tools Japanese investors now seek to handle stock picking in the local equity AM market that is undergoing structural changes. A Sismo coverage extension to Japanese equities is now on the cards.
