About Kyushu Financial Group

Message from President

  • President and Representative Director: Yoshihisa Kasahara

    President and Representative Director:
    Yoshihisa Kasahara

Thank you for your continued support of the Kyushu Financial Group.

At the Board of Directors meeting held after the recent Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders, I was honored to have been appointed President and Representative Director. Together with the executives and employees of the Group, I will continue to work toward the further growth and development of the region. I would like to take this opportunity to seek your further patronage and support.

The Japanese economy in FY2018 continued its path of moderate recovery against the background of steady growth in the global economy. Personal spending held firm based on improvements in the income and employment situations, and, while there was some weakness in housing investment and public spending, capital spending increased in FY2018. On the other hand, while the economy is projected to keep up its expansionary momentum, the slowdown in overseas economies, including the effects of trade friction between the United States and China, is expected to have an impact, leading to the weakening of exports and capital spending.

The management environment surrounding regional banks will remain severe due to population decline, the impact of negative interest rate policies, and other factors. Banks will also need to take action in response to digital technological innovations accompanying the progress in FinTech.

Under these circumstances, the Kyushu Financial Group launched its 2nd Group Medium-Term Management Plan (Integration Stage) in April last year. We will proceed with the integration of the Group, and, with the Higo Bank Group, Kagoshima Bank Group , and Kyushu FG Securities working together as one, strive toward the further sophistication of our regional comprehensive financial functions.

In addition, demonstrating a regional industrial function, we will aim for our evolution into a “group for the joint creation of regional vitality,” one that, together with our customers and the people of the region, will create a vigorous regional society and economy.

The Kyushu Financial Group aims to become a comprehensive financial group which will be truly favored by customers. Toward this aim, we will deliver comprehensive financial services to support each and every one of our customers, and to achieve enduring contributions to the realization of a sustainable regional community that suits the characteristics of the region.

We look forward to receiving your continued support and guidance.

June 2019
