Initiatives Aimed at Improving Convenience

Basic Approach

Mizuho works to improve convenience for customers, which includes promoting the creation of joint branches that seamlessly provide banking, trust banking, and securities products and services; operating next–generation branches that offer the most advanced financial services; and incorporating Fintech, which integrates finance and ICT (information communication technology), such as offering new services using smartphones and other devices.
