Message from CEO

President and CEO Seiji Nakata, Daiwa Securities Group Inc.

Fulfill our role as a securities company to achieve the SDGs.

The SDGs have been an opportunity for me to focus again on the many social issues that exist in the world.
One of the causes of these social issues is the business activities of companies, but on the other hand, there is increasing attention on the role that companies play as a driving force for solving problems.
The Daiwa Securities Group has adopted the SDGs perspective as the basis of its business strategy in its Medium-term Management Plan "Passion for the Best" 2020. As a company, we aim to contribute to the realization of a sustainable and prosperous society that is supported by all stakeholders by creating common value through the simultaneous pursuit of economic value and promoting the resolution of social issues.
Recently, much activity can be seen around new businesses and efforts that contribute to the SDGs. On the other hand, it is said that the funds needed to achieve the SDGs are not in place. As a securities company, we will promote the creation of systems that create sustainable fund flow so that effective efforts to resolve issues will take root in the world.
I think it is my mission as CEO to carefully consider what can be done and what should be done in response to social issues, and to implement those actions.
We will continue to proactively work toward solving social issues and be a company that will be needed by society for the next 100 years. I hope that you will deepen your understanding of our desire to help and initiatives surrounding the SDGs.
