Biography and Next Challenge

杉原 行洋杉原 行洋 Japan Equity Investment Trust Business is our main business currently. My creed to accomplish the business is thorough commitment to know the target companies from all directions by way of “Company Visit”, “Product Check” and “Site Visit” physically. As a result, I have achieved more than 10,000 site visits so far. Our group has received various awards thanks to the track record of our remarkable investment performance derived from the accumulated knowledges and data of those target companies and industries acquired through face to face meetings with management , site visits and analysis of their business model. We are in the process of expanding our business and activities to worldwide including ASEAN and European countries.

To seek for further business opportunities, we are promoting “7 Sigma” project** to develop the way of reproducibility of the sources for the positive performances over the past 10 years in Financial Business through mathematical analysis and AI (Artificial intelligence) approach etc. The team is studying and analyzing from the perspective of “analysis pattern of company value”, “contents of the conversation among the investment team” and “the process of decision making” etc. to seek the clue on the above-mentioned study.

We aim to establish the innovative Fintech to revolutionize the existing business model in the finance world by the findings through the study of “7 Sigma” project together with our historical performance + the cutting-edge technologies like AI + knowledges on the behavioral economics + educational perspective.
