As of now, the number of accounts has exceeded 8 million. This is an increase of approximately 3 million accounts in the three years since the company name change.
From April 2024, we will raise the interest rate on ordinary deposits to 0.03% per year, taking into account fluctuations in market interest rates due to the Bank of Japan’s lifting of its negative interest rate policy, in an effort to provide even better value to our customers. These efforts have been highly evaluated by a wide range of customers, and we were ranked number one overall in the Nihon Keizai Shimbun’s “NIKKEI Financial Bank Ranking” released in April 2024. We received particularly high evaluations in the categories of “product service” and “convenience.”
