From the children, who will be the future, to the elderly, we provide one-stop solutions that meet the diverse lifestyle needs of our customers at various stages of their lives. With our sights set on the age of centenarians, we enhance our financial services in line with our customers’ life events, such as marriage, education, and inheritance, and also approach our customers from areas outside of financial services to help solve local community issues by grasping the needs for things, people, and experiences beyond financial services.

For children shouldering the future

We consider that promoting and improving financial literacy is the mission of regional financial institutions. To reflect that mission, we produced the SDGs for Beginners booklet and the movie to help local children start learning about SDGs and have been promoting its use in financial education.
