Financial Institutions

Our Financial Institutions Group (FIG) provides corporate finance and investment banking solutions to companies in the fast-evolving financial services sector. Our bankers have extensive experience and in-depth expertise in every facet of the industry.

Mizuho's FIG bankers work collaboratively with our product specialists to provide comprehensive solutions that address a range of clients' needs, including debt and equity financing, structured finance, risk management and M&A advisory.

Capital and ideas to navigate rapid change

At a time when technology, consolidation and other forces are reshaping the financial sector, our FIG team is laser-focused on those megatrends and their impact on clients.  Like other industries, the sector is being disrupted by new upstarts, including roboadvisors, blockchain technologies, but also incumbents seeking to provide vertically integrated solutions.  Supported by Mizuho's strong balance sheet, we provide clients the creative ideas and capital they require to navigate those changes. Our sectors of specialization include Insurance, Financial Technology, Specialty Finance, Alternative Asset Managers and Banks.
