Message from the President & CEO of Mizuho Securities


Empowering clients to achieve a fulfilling, prosperous future
in an era marked by dramatic structural change where 100-year lifespans are becoming the norm

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing interest and patronage.

Mizuho Securities is constantly evolving and creating new value in partnership with you. We strive to sincerely listen to you and devote ourselves to providing solutions which resonate with your increasingly diverse needs as well as those of the larger society.

For our retail clients, as your life partner in this age where 100-year lifespans are becoming the norm, our mission is to work closely with you to assist in asset building and create an even brighter future for you and the next generation. As more people shift from saving to investing, Mizuho Securities is committed to serve as a bridge to connect you with the world and thereby empower you to achieve happiness and prosperity. 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. We serve your needs in accordance with our group’s shared philosophy aimed at building your wealth based on a “long-term, diversified, and ongoing” approach.

For our corporate clients, we realize that you face a variety of challenges on many fronts including sustainability, digital transformation, and governance reforms. We constantly strive to engage with you in meaningful ways and work together to realize sophisticated, advantageous solutions. Global markets are becoming increasingly clouded by uncertainty due to a number of factors including rising geopolitical risks and inflation coupled with monetary policy shifts. At Mizuho Securities, we take your opinions and needs seriously and dedicate our professional experience and knowhow to offering you advanced solutions while watching out for signs of change and potential risks. Most importantly, we leverage our passion, sincerity, and ingenuity to serve as your life partner in striving for sustainable growth.

We are dedicated to staking out our own unique evolutionary path. As client needs further diversify, we will move forward based on three core pillars: a client-centric approach across every aspect of our operations, groupwide collaboration as a globally-united team (across Mizuho banking, trust banking, and securities), and leveraging Mizuho’s unique advantages to achieve differentiation and growth. We strive to respect the views of employees (especially those who work on the front lines of our business), ensure sound operations, and strengthen organizational foundations, making full use of our next-generation sales platform and digital innovation. By leveraging the collective strength of the entire group by further strengthening our partnerships with you and others, and by offering new added value as a financial firm, we will strive to be your most-trusted partner as well as the most-trusted partner of the markets and communities we serve.

It is always an honor to serve you and I look forward to your continued support.


August 2022
