The Bank of Japan is the only central bank that holds enormous amounts of stocks of listed companies by purchasing ETFs via its unconventional monetary policy measures. The Bank of Japan has been buying ETFs for more than a decade and, seemingly, has no awareness that it has become a huge investor in the stock market. This article explains how this policy has potentially distorted market mechanisms and how it is difficult to find an exit strategy.
