Richard Susilo -------------------- Japan Post to be inspected as investment trust vendor TOKYO, July 20, Kyodo - The Financial Services Agency is considering directing the Securities and Exchange Surveillance Commission to inspect Japan Post's investment trust operations as early as next fiscal year, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported Tuesday. The leading Japanese business daily said the FSA has signaled its intention to allow post offices to sell investment trusts but apply the same inspection and regulatory measures to the post offices as those applied to private financial institutions. The FSA and the posts ministry are negotiating to help the post offices sell investment trusts and the FSA plans to submit legislation to revise the Securities and Exchanges Law to the Diet this autumn, the report said. The agency is prepared to treat Japan Post as a registered institution under the Securities and Exchanges Law like banks, life insurance companies and other financial institutions handling investment trusts, the report said. In so doing, the report said, the SESC would be able to inspect Japan Post and post offices with sizable sales of investment trusts across the country.
