Basic Policy

Under accelerated globalization of the capital market and innovation in financial technology, market participants’ lack of self-discipline and financial regulations that tended to be reactive are said to have been factors that led to the global financial crisis. Currently, regulatory and supervisory authorities are not only enhancing the existing regulations and supervision, but incorporating macroprudence perspective into the financial system. They are also focusing on risk cultures of financial institutions and promoting communication with the management, which in turn expands the expected roles of the management. Under these circumstances, our basic policy is to provide custom-built solution corresponding to the situation and needs of individual clients, with sufficient understanding of the views and intentions of regulatory and supervisory authorities in Japan, as well as international standard setting bodies and regulatory and supervisory authorities of various countries.
