Message from the President

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone for the ongoing support given to the Chiba Bank Group.

After facing rapid shifts in social and economic conditions including the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, as well as emerging geo-political risk, the values and behavioral patterns of the region’s residents are changing significantly.

In light of these developments, the Bank Group is once again strengthening its commitment to “providing societal value by contributing to the resolution of regional issues”. In addition, we have made our core Purpose “to create a local community better suited to bringing each person’s hope to life” and established a corporate Vision of “an Engagement Bank Group that works closely with the community”.

Based on this Purpose and Vision, the Bank Group will align its views with its stakeholders, which include our customers, shareholders, and employees, as well as continue to be a close presence for the local community and “a place where our stakeholders’ hopes can come to life”.

As part of the 15th Mid-term Plan begining in April, 2023 entitled “Engagement Bank Group – Phase 1–”, we have established a set of operational guidelines for the first three years of working toward achieving our Purpose and Vision which are centered on “the evolution of the customer-focused business model”. We will also strive to further improve engagement with each customer and company within the local community by changing our perspective on delivering products and services as a means towards creating the optimal customer experience while aiming to become a Bank Group that seeks to keep growing together along with the entire region.

We sincerely appreciate your ongoing support.
