Why Select? The Top Reasons

What are you looking for in your Financial Advisor?

Select’s goal is to be considered the very best licensed and independent provider of financial advice in Japan. Here are some of the areas of concern for many people and what Select is doing to prove you should work with us:

How approachable will my advisor be?

You will find Select’s advisors friendly and professional at all times. Whilst we appreciate client’s time we recommend meeting at least once a year face-to-face, be it at your home, office or at Select’s office in central Tokyo. In the meantime, we are always happy to receive contact from clients either by email, phone or in person. Your advisor will provide you with their business card containing all the contact details you need to stay in touch.

How can I be sure I'm receiving good advice?

Select is one of the few financial planning companies in Tokyo that is fully licensed by the Japanese Government’s Ministry of Finance. All of our advisors are experienced, certified and follow ongoing external and in-house training to stay up-to-date on current trends and planning tools. It is Select’s mission to advise clients on the best solution to their planning needs and not to “sell” the next best thing. It is our highly regarded reputation as advisors, not “sellers”, that has helped Select grow to become one of the largest companies of our type in Tokyo.

Our People - Your Personal Financial Advisors

“Our business is all about satisfied clients” – and this is especially true when people are depending on independent financial planning advice.

We know from years of experience that our clients expect the very highest standards of professional expertise and personal integrity – and we aim to give it to them, each and every time.

That’s why everyone on Select’s team is 100% focused on delivering excellent service – whether you’ve been a client for years, or are just beginning your financial journey with us.

For many of our clients, their primary contact point is with one of Select’s Tokyo-based certified financial consultants. This role is so important to our clients’ success that we make sure all of our consultants are certified in Japan.

We also provide them with ongoing and comprehensive training in the financial products and services of the companies we’ve partnered with. This means that they truly understand the details and implications of any recommendation – and can explain it to clients in clear and precise terms.

Our consultants are fluent English speakers – some are also multilingual and multicultural, having lived and worked in many countries. We think you’ll find them a professional and friendly group of people who enjoy helping clients find solutions to their financial planning problems.

Over the years it’s been our privilege to advise clients who’ve come to Japan from all over the world. And we’re fortunate that many remain valued clients even after leaving Japan.

We look forward to being of service to you in the near future. Just contact us for a confidential, no obligations discussion. Alternatively, you can also get to know us better by signing up for our free monthly newsletter. This contains very practical financial planning tips, as well as a detailed synopsis of current market and investment indicators.

Our Clients Mean The World To Us

Over the years it has been our great privilege to advise clients who’ve come to Japan from all over the world. Most remain valued clients even after moving on or returning home. Others have been permanent or long-term residents of Japan for years.

What sets all of these wonderful people apart is a desire to put their money to work. They simply don’t believe in leaving financial planning to chance.

Interestingly, we’ve noticed some patterns in the people who chose Select Asset Management as their independent financial advisors.

The top 3 patterns are:

  • Most are English-speaking, foreign professionals in their 20s, 30s and 40s.
  • A significant number have Japanese spouses and are raising and educating their families in Japan. (Some of these have children in college overseas or are planning to do so)
  • Others are high to medium net worth individuals looking for a company that has an international outlook, matched with a deep understanding of personal financial planning in Japan.

Of course, there are exceptions. Not all of our clients have spouses. Some don’t have children. A few are even in their fifties and beyond.

So, if you’re serious about making the best of your financial future, why not get in touch today. You can reach us by phone or online.
