Investors and market players across the world can now access J-STORIES content through financial news terminal Eikon
J-STORIES, Japan's solutions-focused bilingual news service, has begun distributing its content to the global information network of Refinitiv, a global provider of financial market data.
Investors and financial market participants across the globe who utilize Eikon, Refinitiv’s flagship financial information terminal, can now access news regarding Japanese startups that J-STORIES has been publishing in English and Japanese.
J-STORIES started in April 1,2022 with the mission to report on technology and innovations from Japan that could help solve global, social and environmental issues. This was partly in response to the growing importance of business entities contributing to Environment, Society and corporate Governance (ESG), as well as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) initiatives, inspiring J-STORIES to share information on new solutions arising from Japan that problem-solve across multiple fields, generated by major corporations and startups alike.
The bilingual news outlet that practices solutions-based journalism has since covered nearly 150 startups, institutions and companies that offer potential solutions to global issues.
Refinitiv, under the London Stock Exchange Group, serves over 400,000 clients and 40,000 corporations from approximately 190 countries. Eikon is its flagship financial information terminal, and by beginning to distribute on EIKON, J-STORIES can now be visible to various professionals who influence the global financial market.
J-STORIES' readership includes not only members of the general public but also many journalists, educators and investors. The Tokyo-based news outlet's editorial and production team leaders consist of experienced journalists who have previously worked with both domestic and foreign news organizations such as Reuters, The Associated Press, Nikkei, NHK, TBS and The Japan Times.
J-STORIES Executive Editor, Toshi Maeda, who also serves as CEO of its operating company Pacific Bridge Media and Consulting, was formerly a producer and correspondent for Reuters TV. Meanwhile, Chief Editorial Advisor Katsuro Kitamatsu was the former head of Reuters Japan, while Sayuri Daimon, editorial advisor, is a former managing director and executive operating officer at The Japan Times.
J-STORIES articles are also shared on news aggregator services such as SmartNews, an outlet that provides third-party news content to its audience using a personalized algorithm.
J-STORIES intends to continue cooperating with domestic and international media entities, and further expand its network through which it can directly reach investors, media and business audiences across the globe.
