Investigations for Investors

Common Issues of Investments

Whether contemplating an acquisition, buying into a startup or joint venture or negotiating a real-estate deal, your investments are your time, your money and your future.

So how can you know if the people you are diving into a business venture with are who they say they are? Expanding that vein of thinking into international territory can pose some serious issues. Countries like Japan’s different rules and regulations, social and business customs, and varying expectations can give one different perspective on what’s the bottom line.

Investment Investigations in Japan

Some primary mitigating factors make investment investigations in Japan different from Western countries.

These include the following:


Litigation records are not open to the public because, based on Japan’s continental law system, it is not required to refer to precedent cases when investigating a prospective investor.

Privacy Laws

Due to Japan’s stringent privacy laws, the majority of government records are confidential. Even criminal records, which are one of the most vital pieces of information when conducting a background check, are strictly confidential in Japan.

Social Media

Common social media outlets such as Facebook and LinkedIn are not prevalent in Japan, making basic online searches a challenge. The purveyor of online social interaction is called LINE, which requires at least an ID or cell phone number. Refer to this expansive page for a more detailed look into Japan’s social media map.

Shareholder Information

Loose company laws result in shareholder information and name-based searches being unavailable to the public. Therefore, it is not possible to conduct a directorship search in a company registry record database.
