Our History

The history of Mizuho Financial Group (Mizuho) dates back to 1873 with the establishment of Dai-Ichi Bank, the first national bank in Japan. Our history informs our present thinking, which values mutually beneficial long-term relationships and steady and sustainable growth.

Mizuho’s European presence dates back to 1952. We have continued to grow ever since, spreading throughout the EMEA region. EMEA is a key part of the Group's global ambitions and going forward we are committed to our presence in this region and are well positioned to increase it.
