Management Strategy & Plan

Management Strategy

Build a “Theme park for the security, health and wellbeing of customers”

Our goal is to evolve into a “theme park for the security, health, and wellbeing of customers.” To this end, based on the theme of “security, health, and wellbeing of customers,” we will bring happiness to our customers’ lives by developing a wide range of businesses beyond the boundaries of insurance, harnessing digital technologies, and providing the highest-quality services to customers while constantly remaining by their side.

Strategy to realize our vision

We will rigorously enhance the appeal of each business, in conjunction with implementing measures such as upgrading and expanding services leveraging digital technologies, strengthening our customer contact, and forming partnerships among businesses. To provide customers with high-quality services at an even earlier stage, we will actively work to form partnerships with major players, and accelerate growth and explore new business opportunities through M&A activity. Through these and other actions, we will continuously refine our total services for customers in anticipation of changes in our customer base, with the aim of building and evolving “a theme park for the security, health and wellbeing of customers.”

In the Mid-Term Management Plan’s first fiscal year, fiscal 2016, adjusted consolidated profit and adjusted consolidated ROE surpassed targets as a result of steady efforts in each business.
Also, we completed a variety of initiatives, including the acquisition of Sompo International (formerly Endurance Specialty Holdings Ltd.), the establishment of business foundations for the nursing care business, the establishment of SOMPO Digital Lab with a view to embarking upon a full-fledged digital strategy, and the introduction of a Business Owner system to facilitate prompt, flexible decision-making. We will continue steadily implementing measures under the Mid-Term Management Plan to realize our vision as early as possible.
