Serving as your bridge to a prosperous future
–Always aiming to be your most trusted partner–

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support and patronage.

In striving to maximize value for you in the coming new era, we at Mizuho Securities have been undertaking a series of forward–looking structural reforms based on Mizuho Financial Group’s 5–Year Business Plan: Transitioning to the Next Generation of Financial Services. We are deeply dedicated to contributing to your development and prosperity by serving as a bridge between "individuals, companies, and investors," and "Japan and the rest of the world," while also serving as "a bridge to tomorrow."

The corona pandemic has led the world to a historic turning point. It has served to clarify underlying issues and structural changes. People’s lives and the very fabric of our society, along with industrial structures, are changing rapidly in response to the increasingly rapid pace of digitization and the fragmentation and polarization of the global economy. More importantly, however, whether you are an individual or corporate client, you come first. Mizuho Securities is always by your side to respond to your dramatically changing challenges and needs in the current corona era and in the post–corona era as well. All of us at Mizuho Securities look forward to opportunities to offer you solutions while creating value tailored to your unique situation.

–With regard to individual clients, we are seeing an increasing need for stable asset–building to address a world where 100–year life spans are becoming the norm. Mizuho Securities is promoting a "global equity strategy" based on the theme of "long–term, diversified, and global" while expanding collaboration with other Mizuho group companies to promote the shift from saving to investing. In addition, in order to serve the needs of senior citizens as a "life design partner," we will further enhance client satisfaction by strengthening our "senior consultant" capabilities via in–depth knowledge of inheritance and asset management, and by enhancing consulting expertise by leveraging data and AI advances.

–With regard to corporate clients, responding to the international climate and corona are extremely important themes in formulating business and financial strategies. Across capital markets as well, structural changes are becoming evident, including the shift from public to private markets. We will continue to decisively deliver growth capital to companies by globally linking investors to issuers and companies to companies based on fresh perspectives while also supporting business/growth strategies which factor in changes taking place across industries and industry structures.

As a capital markets intermediary, our mission as a securities company is to realize an ongoing cycle of prosperity by linking individual financial assets to corporate and societal growth which in turn spurs corporate and societal growth, as well as individual asset formation. In striving to respond to your diverse needs and offer sophisticated solutions, our bank, trust & banking, and securities arms are linked as one united Mizuho group dedicated to executing structural reforms and striving to be the most–trusted partner for you, and the markets and communities we serve.

Again, thank you for your ongoing support. All of us at Mizuho Securities look forward to serving you.
