ASA to Offer Asset Based Lending Valuation Related Education in Japan
January 4, 2013 (Reston, VA) The American Society of Appraisers is pleased to announce the offering of Asset Based Lending valuation related education in Japan.
In collaboration with ASA’s Machinery and Technical Specialties (MTS) discipline, the Japanese Society of Independent Appraisers (JaSIA) and the Japanese Regional Bankers Association (JRBA), ASA will offer a customized course combining ASA’s basic MTS valuation and advanced MTS inventory courses to JRBA’s 64 major regional bank members with a total of 135,000 employees.
The driving force to offer this specialized education stems from the Japanese government’s policy to promote Asset Based Lending in Japan and the resulting pressure from the Financial Service Agency (FSA), Japan’s banking regulatory body, on JRBA to take effective action to realize this policy.
“We believe this is a major breakthrough by our marketing efforts to establish and institutionalize ASA education in Japan”, said Kazuo Wakayama, Executive Director of the Japanese Society of Independent Appraisers.
The course is scheduled for February 25-28, 2013, in Tokyo with an expected 40-50 participants from JRBA member banks all over Japan. JRBA is planning to offer this course regularly if this first offering turns out to be successful and also in expressing their interests in other ASA courses.
