In an era of “the 100-year life” and “dramatic change”:
we strive for your happiness and prosperity

I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest sympathies to all those who have suffered, as well as all those whose work and lives have been impacted, as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Mizuho Securities is a team of professionals that connects capital markets and clients. Leveraging our extensive network in Japan and around the world, we strive to offer our deep expertise, knowledge, and above all, our passion, sincerity and ingenuity. Based on the Group's "5-Year Business Plan: Transitioning to the Next Generation of Financial Services,” we have been undertaking structural reforms to strengthen our management foundations and enhance the added value we offer.

In an age where 100-year lifespans are becoming the norm, our mission is to realize a prosperous future for our clients, society and the world. We pursue your best interests, constantly upgrading our ability to offer comprehensive asset consulting expertise while providing services tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. Mizuho, as a united group, offers sophisticated, diverse and seamless financial solutions. We serve your needs in accordance with our group’s shared philosophy aimed at building your wealth based on a “long-term, diversified, and continuous” approach.

In this era of dramatic change, we leverage our professional knowledge and experience to accurately anticipate industrial and societal trends. We sincerely listen to issuers and investors and offer highly-advanced solutions tailored to their needs. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated change on a global scale, transforming people’s lives and the very fabric of society. It is increasingly urgent that we transform our operations to achieve sustainable growth, such as digitalization, carbon neutral operations, and governance reforms. In the post-COVID-19 world, in partnership with you, we will strive for sustainable growth and provide best solutions to a wide range of issues by keeping our finger on the pulse of global trends and dynamic structural change.

We are dedicated to staking out our own unique evolutionary path. As client needs further diversify, we will continue to refine our products, services, and solutions. In responding to ongoing changes in how clients access services and products, we will further expand channels to offer more advantages by combining real and virtual access. By leveraging the collective strength of the entire group, by further strengthening our partnerships with clients, and by offering new added value as a financial firm, we will strive to be the most-trusted partner for our clients as well as the markets and communities we serve.

It is always an honor to serve you and we look forward to not only meeting but exceeding your expectations.
