Mizuho Bank, Ltd.
Start of the New Mizuho Bank
Mizuho Bank, Ltd. and Mizuho Corporate Bank, Ltd. merged today, marking a new beginning as a single entity named Mizuho Bank, Ltd. We sincerely thank all our customers for their warm support and patronage to date and also for their patience for any inconvenience we caused during the pre–merger process.
The two pre–merger banks worked tirelessly since their inception in April 2002 to provide the most comprehensive service to meet the needs of both our retail and wholesale banking customers. The new Mizuho Bank will strive to respond to our customers' varying needs more precisely and expeditiously than ever before by making optimal use of the strengths and advantages that the two banks have cultivated to date.
As we aim to be the best financial services provider in the industry, Mizuho will further strengthen group collaboration among our banking, trust and securities functions under the banner of "One Mizuho" and provide customers with multifaceted and seamless financial services in a direct and timely manner. We are also committed to strengthening corporate governance of the group and improving group management efficiency, achieving stable and sustainable growth with our customers, and contributing to sound economic and social development both in Japan and on a global basis as a unified, integrated financial services group.
