Samurai Bond
A Yen-denominated Bond issued in Tokyo by a non-Japanese company and subject to Japanese regulations.
    
Other types of Yen-denominated bonds are Euro yens issued in countries other than Japan.
    
Samurai bonds give issuers the ability to access investment capital available in Japan. The proceeds from the issuance of samurai bonds can be used by non-Japanese companies to break into the Japanese market, or it can be converted into the issuing company's Local Currency to be used on existing operations. Samurai bonds can also be used to Hedge foreign Exchange rate Risk.
    
Issuance in the samurai Bond market has more than tripled over the past several years. Some observers have attributed this growth to a systematic underestimation of Credit risk in the market. A detailed review of credit quality, ratings differences, and initial issue pricing in the samurai Bond market, however, turns up little evidence to support this concern.
