Publication of Daiwa Securities Group Integrated Report 2022

Daiwa Securities Group marked its 120th anniversary in May 2022. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to our shareholders and other stakeholders, recognizing that reaching this milestone was only possible because of your support.

FY2022 is the second year of Vision 2030, which shows the kind of company we are aiming to be in 2030, and of the Medium-Term Management Plan “Passion for the Best” 2023, covering the first three years of that period.

Based on the Corporate Principles, which consist of four components-“building trust,” “placing importance on personnel,” “contributing to society,” and “maintaining healthy earnings results”-the Group is working to implement the Vision 2030 and Medium-Term Management Plan while continuously enhancing corporate value. To deepen understanding of the corporate activities the Group is undertaking and to generate value together with all of our stakeholders, we have created this Integrated Report as a tool for dialogue.

Integrated Report 2022 showcases the Group’s initiatives and progress with regard to our Materiality from both financial and non-financial perspectives. In addition, in line with the Group’s emphasis on human capital, rooted in the conviction that the capabilities of our employees are the source of our competitiveness, the Report discusses how initiatives such as the pursuit of job satisfaction and measures to increase engagement and productivity will lead to the enhancement of corporate value, bringing in the voices of employees.

Aside from financial information, the Group places high value on active dialogue with investors and stakeholders through the disclosure of non-financial information essential to enhancing medium- to long-term corporate value. Based on feedback regarding last year’s Integrated Report 2021 and other advice received through dialogue with stakeholders, we sought to enhance the content of Integrated Report 2022 to make it an even more useful tool for investors and stakeholders.

Detailed ESG-related data and other information are available on our website. I would appreciate it if you would provide us with your opinions on this report, and would like to ask for your continued support.

Commenced operations as Fujimoto Bill Broker

Daiwa Securities Group was established with the aim of becoming a full-fledged bill broker*. Since starting up operations, the company built up a position in the market by seeking to grow the business based on its proprietary accounts, procuring funds from the call market and buying bills. The ability to raise adequate funds directly from the call market led to Daiwa Securities’ later independence from any bank.

Corporate History

Since its establishment, the Group has been steadily building relationships with clients while encouraging the formation and development of Japan’s financial markets. In line with our thoughts on prioritizing customer needs, Daiwa Securities Group cultivates products and schemes and works as a pioneer in the financial and capital market.

In 2021, Daiwa Securities Group formulated a vision leading up to 2030 as well as a Medium-Term Management Plan covering the first three years of that period. Seizing on changes in society as opportunities, the Group is working to transform the business model while enhancing corporate value and contributing to society.

1999Corporate split, adoptionof holding company structure

As Japan’s financial Big Bang touched off industry restructuring at an unimagined pace, boosting competitiveness as quickly as possible became a matter of pressing urgency. After reassessing the characteristics of each business, we recognized the need to undertake drastic reforms and organizational improvements. In 1999, the Group moved to a holding company structure to maintain Group-wide synergies while providing the highest-level financial services by leveraging the agility and specialization unique to each business area. We also established Daiwa Securities SB Capital Markets Co. Ltd., a wholesale securities company, through a strategic

2012Birth of “new” Daiwa Securities

We dissolved the ten-year joint venture with Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group in the wholesale securities business in 2009, and Daiwa Securities Group became an independent securities company. In 2012, Daiwa Securities Co. Ltd. merged with Daiwa Securities Capital Markets Co. Ltd., and the Group set out on a new path as the “new” Daiwa Securities. We had put various measures in place to expand stable revenues and streamline organizational management, but the merger of the two companies made it possible to achieve even more efficient organizational management and augment our ability to respond to increasingly diverse customer needs.


Amid rapid industrialization following the Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895), the number of ordinary banks skyrocketed in Japan, with numerous small banks cropping up, finally peaking in 1901. Since many of these small banks had a weak financial base and poor creditworthiness, they were often embroiled in a banking panic when a financial crisis struck. In this unsettled climate, Group founder Seibei Fujimoto resolved to go beyond mere bill broking and enter the business of mediating funds between financial institutions and the business world as a full-fledged bill broker, establishing Fujimoto Bill Broker in 1902. This was the origin of the current Daiwa Securities Group.

1933Name changed to Fujimoto Bill Broker Securities

In 1907, the company changed its name to Fujimoto Bill Broker Bank, and business continued to expand steadily. Subsequently, prompted by a series of bank failures, the Japanese government enacted a new banking law in 1927, significantly restricting concurrent banking and brokerage business operations, and disallowing the buying and selling of public and corporate bonds except in cases where this remained an auxiliary business of a bank. At the time, Fujimoto Bill Broker Bank was much more heavily involved in the securities trading business than in the deposit and exchange businesses. It thus opted to discontinue the banking business and set out as a pure securities company. The company changed its name to Fujimoto Bill Broker Securities Co. Ltd. in 1933.

1964Expanding international presence

In 1964, the Group established a subsidiary in New York, called Daiwa Securities America Inc. The gradual liberalization of capital markets from the 1960s into the early 1970s ushered in signs of a shift in the investing patterns of foreign investors in Japan. To meet growing overseas interest in Japanese stocks, Daiwa was first among financial companies in Japan to start holding seminars on Japanese stocks. Meanwhile, we expanded the overseas branch network as well as the scope of overseas operations. Daiwa’s reputation in the overseas business took hold, and the company came to be known for its robust presence in the international sector.
