One of our missions is to create sustainable shareholder value through business growth, and we adopt a corporate governance system that puts shareholder value at the center of our management goals. We believe enhancement of shareholder value cannot be achieved without appropriate disclosure of corporate and financial information.
We believe it is indispensable to obtain feedbacks from our communication with the market through disclosure activities in order to further promote the sound management of SMFG group, and we will further endeavor to obtain and utilize such feedbacks. Through these disclosure activities, we pledge to meet the expectations of our clients, shareholders, investors and other stakeholders, and raise shareholders' value by gaining positive valuations from the market.
On the basis of these basic ideas above, we have a Disclosure Policy as follows:
Moreover, we have a Disclosure Committee in order to embody the spirit of the disclosure policy.
Based on the system described above, we will further improve the contents of our annual reports and other publications and press releases, and provide quick and easy access to our corporate and financial information by actively using our website and other internet-related media. To ensure the disclosure policy, we will further develop out disclosure and IR systems of the group.
