In terms of inventive creativity, advanced technology, and future commercial potential, Mizuho Financial Group’s business position has not always been good. In today’s business environment, Mizuho Financial Group is looking to create new businesses and provide highly convenient services for our customers more than ever before, in order to establish an advanced brand image as a financial institution, by collaborating with large vendors who have these strengths and Fintech companies.

In recent years, there has been a worldwide movement toward providing innovative financial services, which has been dubbed “Fintech.” Fintech encompasses technology such as big data, artificial intelligence (AI), and blockchain, and is regarded as a forerunner of new financial services. In line with this trend, the Banking Act in Japan has been updated to allow financial institutions to work with venture enterprises that are expected to produce new financial services in order to foster open innovation. In this regard, the so–called “5% rule,” which limited financial institutions’ voting ownership in other companies to 5% under the Banking Act, has been eased to allow investment in finance–related IT companies (Fintech companies).

Mizuho Financial Group is supporting the use of blockchain technology in financial services by assisting with the launch of the first blockchain–based verification project led by Japanese enterprises, which will use the technology for worldwide international remittances and international securities settlement services.

Mizuho Financial Group has also put AI-programmed humanoid robots in its branches to do tasks like as evaluating customers’ insurance coverage and assisting customers with account opening. Through addition, Mizuho is considering applying the information and know–how gained from these initiatives in channels other than robots, including as mobile devices and ATMs, to deliver wholly new services that have never been offered before.
