EY Japan becomes Yokohama IR advisory firm

EY Japan has pulled down a major IR advisory contract with the Yokohama municipal government scheduled to run through March 2022.

The value of the contract is estimated to be about JPY217 million (about US$2 million).

EY Japan will assist the Yokohama municipal government in forming and implementing its IR policies, including the selection of an IR operator partner.

The same firm, EY Japan, won the earlier advisory contract for the Yokohama RFI, and won an initial contract to produce an IR study for the city that was published in March 2017.

EY Japan has also been advising the Wakayama and Aichi prefectural governments on their potential IR bids.
