Corporate History

Asuka Corporate Advisory was established in March 2005. Asuka Corporate Advisory started to support the enhancement of corporate value of investee companies of the "Asuka Value Up Fund". On March 2009, the firm registered as Investment Advisor Service with the Financial Services Agency of Japan. They continue to seek potential investee, and research and advise to enhance corporate values.

The name, “Asuka”, is derived from the Asuka period in Japanese history, which heralded in a new era in which the traditional cultures of Japan borrowed influences from foreign cultures and civilizations. At Asuka, we are committed to bringing a new practice to Japanese capital markets by adopting global best practices and integrating them with Japanese practices, which has proved successful.

The name “Asuka” is also written using the Chinese characters meaning “tomorrow” (“asu”) and “fragrance” (“ka”), which can be interpreted to imply blossom and prosperity. Our hope is to create future prosperity for businesses in Japan.
