Tami Hashiura

Freelance announcer

As a freelance announcer, Hashiura currently works as a facilitator and news anchor in different genres. She enjoys “stock” trading as a hobby, which gave her an advantage in getting a securities broker representative license and expanding her activities in the field of economics. She also holds a financial planner license, eco-test certificate, as well as a dietary life advisor and financial knowledge instructor licenses.


Noriko Kunimatsu

CEO of FPQ Inc. 1st grade Certified Skilled Professional of Financial Planning, CFP®

After entering university, Kunimatsu had to become completely financially independent due to family reasons. Through supporting herself with many part-time jobs and a scholarship, she graduated from university and found work.
This experience made her feel strongly about the importance of information regarding “money” in her teens. She also felt that encountering people who can provide useful information can determine the direction of one’s life, bringing herself to become “a person who can provide information that helps others.” This enthusiasm formed the basis for her current profession as a financial planner. While working at a consulting-affiliated accounting firm, she acquired her financial planner license and began working independently. Her experience as a professional financial planner spans 28 years.
Kunimatsu is a practical financial planner, and provides advisory services for company employees, corporate managers, doctors and wealthy individuals in their 20s to 90s. Based on such service, she continues to disseminate money-related information through seminar lectures at government agencies, universities and companies as well as newspapers, magazines, websites and other media.
