As President & CEO of Mizuho Trust & Banking, I would like to express my deep appreciation for your continued interest and support.

As a trust bank, Mizuho Trust & Banking strives to fulfill the mission entrusted to us by society. We aim to precisely identify the concerns and shifting challenges that Mizuho group customers are facing in order to provide a wide range of the best possible trust solutions with a high level of expertise.

A low birthrate, aging society, technological advancement, evolving corporate governance reforms, and other such structural shifts, as well as the Covid-19 pandemic, are leading to significant impacts on the economy, society, and our daily lives. To respond to these factors, we are working to create new value in finance and adjacent fields as a part of the Mizuho group's 5-Year Business Plan: Transitioning to the Next Generation of Financial Services. To this end we are combining our flexibility, technology, and non-financial services to develop and provide new trust products and services.

For retail customers, we aim to support a range of needs such as smooth asset succession and business succession, or building assets for life after retirement and selecting lifestyle support services, and other such needs that may arise for business owners or older customers. In order to address these needs, we are working to expand the products and services we offer to provide a high level of added value through utilizing technology and open collaboration with companies outside the Mizuho group. Additionally, we are working to provide our trust banking offerings to a wider range of customers through online services and other channels.

Our corporate clients also face a range of challenges such as adapting to the "new normal" , revising their business portfolio in line with changes in the financial and economic environment, or achieving sustainable growth and increasing their corporate value while taking into consideration their relationships with a range of stakeholders, including institutional investors. To respond to these needs, we are consolidating insight and expertise from both within and outside the Mizuho group in fields such as real estate, asset securitization, pensions, and stock transfer agency services, aiming to provide the best possible trust solutions.

Mizuho Trust & Banking not only provides the unchanging value of a traditional financial institution—reliability and security—but also we are passionate about continually taking on new challenges and devising innovative, forward-looking ideas for how to provide unique value that only Mizuho is capable of offering

We appreciate your continued support and will make every effort to not only meet, but exceed, your expectations.
