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

At Mizuho Trust & Banking, we are working towards achieving the Mizuho group's 5–Year Business Plan: Transitioning to the Next Generation of Financial Services by drawing on our ability to develop products aligned to customer needs and our sophisticated consulting capabilities in order to provide the best possible trust products and services in response to the concerns and challenges that Mizuho group customers are facing.

A low birthrate, aging society, technological advancement, evolving corporate governance reforms, and other such structural shifts are leading to major changes in customer needs and the rise of new social challenges. To respond to these changes, we have positioned Open & Connected and Passionate & Professional as our action principles. In line with these principles, we will work in open collaboration with players in other industries and proactively adopt digital technology, among other efforts, aiming to draw on our high level of expertise as a specialized trust bank in order to cultivate the next generation of trust banking business.

For individual 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 line with different life events. 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 the flexible combination of our finance and trust banking capabilities. Additionally, we are working to provide our trust banking offerings to a wider range of customers through digital services and other channels.

Our corporate clients also face a range of challenges such as revising their business portfolio in line with changes in the financial and economic environment and shifts in industrial structures, 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 to the challenges clients face.

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.
