We consider that as a public company, we should actively provide our corporate information for investors not only to make decisions on the purchase of our shares, but also to be able to sell our shares. To realize this concept, Monex Group, Inc. ("the Company") is in compliance with the following rules:
- The Company shall disclose a disclosure policy and objectively disclose information based on this policy.
- The Company shall immediately release any information which may have an impact on its performance, doing so as soon as such information becomes known.
- The Company shall disclose information on financial results every quarter. The announcement for such information will be made in a standardized manner as much as possible.
- The Company shall make efforts to reduce as much as possible the difference in information available to institutional investors and individual investors.
In addition, in order to maximize the profit of shareholders in the long term, the management of a company needs to recognize the importance of corporate governance, and make continuous efforts to improve it. Based on such a belief, we are implementing various innovations such as appointing directors who have never been employees of the Company or its subsidiaries(i.e. outside directors), holding advisory board meetings that consists of domestic and international intellectuals, disclosure of the compliance policy, improvement of internal control and enhancement of the employee education program.
Disclosure of important information is initially made through registration of the information to the "TDnet System" of the JAPAN EXCHANGE GROUP.
The "TDnet System" is an online system used for the timely disclosure of important corporate information, and disclosed materials are presented for 31 days immediately after such materials are disclosed. Users are allowed to access the website free of charge.
Immediately after the disclosure on the TDnet System, the same material is placed on our website.
