TOKYO/HONG KONG, 10 February 2014 -Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source
of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, will host its
inaugural Japanese Regulatory Summit in Tokyo on 6 March. Building on the
success of a strong history of Thomson Reuters Regulatory Summits in the Asia
Pacific region, this one day program will bring together a strong line-up of
speakers to explore how financial regulation, governance, risk and compliance
affects business from an enterprise-wide perspective, while examining how
companies can adopt best-practice approaches to the challenges of driving down
costs, enhancing performance and effectively managing risk.

The summit will connect Japanese and international regulatory bodies to key
financial services providers, providing in-depth analysis and discussion
relating to financial reforms and regulation, focusing on topics including
corporate governance, enforcement and supervision, anti-money laundering
(AML), international regulation and cross border co-operation, enterprise-wide
risk management and alternative trading platforms.

    Services Agency (JFSA) will deliver the opening keynote speech.

"Japan already has one of the strongest financial regulatory frameworks, but
with the rapidly changing regulatory environment, both at home and
internationally, the industry requires dialogue on key topics to stay abreast
of the issues. The summit will also discuss the impact of financial regulation
on firms that now have substantial businesses beyond Japan's shores and the
extra-territorial regulation that applies to them," said Leas Bachatene, Vice
President, Thomson Reuters Risk, Asia Pacific.

Over 250 senior executives are expected to attend the Summit from key
financial regulatory bodies, exchanges, industry associations and financial
services firms. The summit is supported by PricewaterhouseCoopers, Datawatch,
Markit Group, Robert Walters, and the CFA Society of Japan.
