Unique management strategy implementation by advancing digital transformation

Of the mentioned strategies above, we consider that digitalization should be one critically important task to be taken on. Such a view is based on our perception of the current changes in the business environment, and they are rapidly permeating digitalization, fast FinTech evolution and its subsequently expanding application fields, new entrants into the financial industry from the non-financial sector, and workstyle changes induced by corona pandemic. All these changes in operational circumstances call for digital transformation for us to maintain sustainable growth for the sake of our better adaptation and survival. Thus, we will grapple proactively with digital transformation.

We, Tokai Tokyo Financial Group, aspire to reconfigure our business up to a next-generation securities brokerage operation which is dubbed “Securities DX3.0”. Toward this end, we use AI-driven database marketing, diagnosis-based inheritance simulation analysis, and asset management performance evaluation tools for better customer service, as well as implement work process reform. Further, we keep honing the services in digital arenas such as the one for smartphone users, and others associated with digital currencies trading and blockchain technology and sharing those with an expanded range of alliance partners. As such, we will contribute to the nation’s economy and society by growing ourselves as a distinctive securities brokerage firm carrying full-line services and products that set us apart from the competitors.

About DX Stocks

During the five-year period beginning in 2015, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (“METI”) and the Tokyo Stock Exchange (“TSE”) had jointly started the program implementation for selecting the stock of the company excelling in IT utilization. This initiative mirrors a part of their collaborative endeavor to promote IT use among Japanese corporations. The program conferred the recognition of “the Stock of the Company Proactively Utilizing IT” to the companies that introduced IT to improve operational innovations, corporate earnings and productivity, which lead to the increased corporate value and fortified competitiveness in mid-to-long-term perspective.
In 2020, the program modified the selection criteria for DX Stocks and it now chooses the company using digital resource and taking on the DX that radically changes business model for grabbing new growth opportunity and acquiring enhanced competitiveness.
From 2022, METI, TSE and newly participated Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan (“IPA”) select “DX stock” in each industry category from among the TSE-listed companies. The company to be selected should have established an internal mechanism that leads the DX initiative resulting in higher corporate value. Further, the company should demonstrate an excellent record of DX utilization.
