Japan's market for syndicated finance reached JPY28.5 trillion in fiscal year 2015 (according to data released by Japanese Bankers Association) and has grown to become one of the world's leading syndication markets, following the United States and United Kingdom. In fiscal year 2015, Mizuho Bank accounted for 37.0% (according to data released by Thomson Reuters) of the domestic syndication market, No.1 market share. Going forward, we plan to draw on our strong sales and syndication capabilities to meet the diverse financing requirements of our clients.
