Kanmu Announces Appointment of Executive Officers to Strengthen Management Structure

Kanmu Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Wataru Yamaki) is pleased to announce that a new executive officer has been appointed as of April 1, 2024.
* ■Background of appointment as executive officer*

Kanmu is a FinTech company that aims to update banking functions in Japan with the mission of “creating new options for money.” Since 2016, we have been offering the “Bundle Card”, a Visa prepaid card that anyone can make, and achieved 10 million downloads in February 2024. Since 2022, we have been offering “Pool”, which allows you to complete “investment and payment” in one app.

Recently, with the rapid changes in Japan’s economy and society, there is a situation where the ability to distribute funds to people and companies in need is not sufficient. We want to transform a society where financial services are underserved to one where everyone can easily use them. Going forward, our company will further diversify its business by leveraging its unique perspective and technical
capabilities as a FinTech company in the “finance x IT” field.

Based on this, we have appointed executive officers to focus on strengthening the structure and developing functions of existing businesses, promoting new business development and M&A, and
strengthening recruitment and building organizational structures associated with these. From this appointment as executive officer, I will transfer authority in both business and corporate areas, develop and provide new options for money, and aim to realize a society with updated banking functions.
