For many, Monex Group is synonymous with Oki Matsumoto. So, for Monex Group, having someone other than the founder Oki Matsumoto take the reins as president and CEO is a bold decision.
On the other hand, this is an opportunity for Monex Group and our employees to grow and develop further for many years to come. As each of us thinks about the work we must do and shares new ideas, the company will evolve. That is how we will move from being “Oki Matsumoto’s Monex Group” to “Everyone’s Monex Group.”
Monex Group is a company that respects diverse backgrounds and ways of thinking. It is a company that thinks and operates in new paradigms. It is a company that gives people the independence to create new businesses. These people, with a spirit of challenge and venture, bring together a variety of sensitivities, perspectives and ideas. If they can incorporate new technologies and values to create the future, then Monex Group will surely grow to become a 100-year-old company.
As we do this, it will be important to preserve our core values by passing on what should be preserved and altering what should be changed. Our vision is to enable individuals to achieve self-fulfillment and optimize their lifetime balance sheet. Our creativity, passion and culture to pursue this for our customers are firmly rooted.
With these thoughts in mind, the first thing we must do to change gears is pursue greater productivity and efficiency. For a company to continue to grow over the long term, we must raise the productivity of each employee and pursue high capital efficiencies. At the same time, we must always be future oriented.
If we work together as a team to respond to global changes and state-of-the-art technologies, if we maintain a desire to forge a new future, if we continue to pursue our vision to enable individuals to achieve self-fulfillment and optimize their lifetime balance sheet, then we can become a company that contributes to the future of people.
To become a company that is vital to society and to our customers, to continue to evolve in a sustainable manner, to raise corporate value, to create a workplace where our employees challenge themselves to grow and work with each other in a lively manner – these are the missions entrusted to me.
We look forward to your ongoing support.
