On behalf of all of us at Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for your continued support.

Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities (MUMSS) was launched in May 2010 as a joint venture between Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) and Morgan Stanley.

Since the launch of the company, we have been offering a range of solutions to meet the diversified needs of our clients. We have achieved results based on cooperation between MUFG, a world-class financial institution, and Morgan Stanley, which has the ability to provide global services and capabilities to offer outstanding products and proposals. Backed by a proven track record, we are now dealing with clients across a wide range of fields. We owe this to your kind support, for which I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude once again.

The financial industry has recently been facing dramatic changes in clients’ values and lifestyles against the backdrop of the accelerated shift from savings to investment and asset building, the progress of digitization, the lingering COVID-19 pandemic, environmental issues such as climate change, and the materialization of geopolitical risks.

In order to address these changes, we set forth the slogan of “Challenge for a Better Tomorrow” in the new medium-term business plan that we started in the previous fiscal year. We are strongly determined to constantly take on the challenge of creating a better future for society.

Each and every one of us, including directors, officers and employees, will work to hone our respective professional skills and continue to embrace the challenge of promoting reforms. We will also join forces to make MUMSS, a securities company that is “committed to empowering a brighter future,” which is the purpose of the MUFG Group.

In closing, I humbly ask that you continue to support our company.
