Main Future Initiatives

Steady Organic Growth
The core directive of our organic growth strategies in developed markets is business expansion that uses as a platform Sompo International that functions to integrate overseas businesses in developed countries in the future.In pursuit of further growth, we will build synergies with Sompo International by reorganizing insurance and reinsurance businesses, integrating underwriting processes, implementing ERM (enterprise risk management), and expanding development through the use of the Sompo Holdings Group’s networks and licenses. Further, focusing on the retail sector, we will use already established business foundations in Brazil, Turkey, and Southeast Asia to achieve growth above the market average.

Growth through Disciplined M&A
Our policy for conducting overseas M&A is to continue to strike a balance between investments in developed countries and emerging countries. Through discussions at the Overseas M&A Committee chaired by a director with overall responsibility for overseas M&A, as well as other channels, we conduct speedy examinations of investment candidates while remaining disciplined.
