Message from the President
First, please allow me to express my deep appreciation for your valued and ongoing support.
On April 1, 2022, I assumed the offices of Director & President of Fukuoka Financial Group, Inc. and Director & President of The Bank of Fukuoka, Ltd.
Fukuoka Financial Group (FFG) is a regional financial organization with a network that covers the entire Kyushu area while focusing primarily on the prefectures of Fukuoka, Kumamoto, and Nagasaki. Since our group's inception in April 2007, we have established a unique "Single Platform/Multiple Brands" management style while fulfilling the needs of local customers by efficiently providing sophisticated and diverse financial services. Maintaining a basic policy of creating a favorable cycle consisting of "contribution to regional economic development" and "improvement of corporate value,"FFG has contributed to the revitalization and development of the local economy through a variety of both financial and non-financial initiatives.
The environment surrounding financial institutions is undergoing drastic changes, including a declining population, an aging society with a declining birthrate, and a prolonged period of low interest rates. We view this situation as an opportunity for fostering change, and have consistently taken on challenges in new business areas such as "digital transformation" and "sustainability" while also developing exceptional human resources. In FY2022, we will launch our new Mid-Term Management Plan. Through this plan, we will support the achievement of sustainable regional communities, which we view as both the mission of FFG and the core of its sustainability objectives.
FFG will strive to fulfill its aspiration, "to be your Bank of choice" as all of its executives and employees deepen their commitment toward making FFG into "the best regional financial group that enjoys support from all stakeholders."
We look forward to your continued support and patronage moving forward.
