Who We Are

Mizuho Americas is the financial institution that combines seemingly disparate things—Japanese culture and American talent, considered risk mitigation and a creative approach, local market knowledge and global reach—to act faster, see further and adapt better in every decision, every day.

Our parent company—Mizuho Financial Group—came together in late 2002, merging three of the largest banks in Japan. With our backing as a financial powerhouse in Asia and our growing presence across the Americas, we’re able to meet local market needs with a combination of truly customized care and $1.8 trillion in assets (as of March 31, 2017).

Today, as part of one of the largest financial institutions in the world, Mizuho Americas leans on that Japanese heritage and diligence that saw us through the past years of financial turmoil. We honor our namesake “Mizuho” meaning “golden ears of rice”—a poetic term for Japan itself—and at the same time, embrace our local markets’ taste for success and a flair for innovation. The result is a hybrid style of thinking and execution, that’s entirely our own.


Stability and that extra edge

Our long-standing client relationships are our greatest point of pride. We offer strategic solutions and consulting for the increasingly sophisticated and technological needs of our large client base—primarily corporations, financial institutions, pensions, hedge funds and public sector entities.

Our services dive deep into industry and client needs. They’re guided by a mix of careful decision-making and creative approaches to the complexity of our clients’ financial goals and the countries where they do business.

There’s no product assembly line here. We help clients find different angles on issues and opportunities so we can pull in the right pieces for a perfect hybrid solution.
