Our Strengths in Achieving Excellent Outcomes

Supporting Our Clients’ Sound Judgment

By leveraging our extensive experience and knowledge, we support our clients in making thoughtful and actionable decisions that best correspond to their respective needs and strategies.

Reliable Execution Capabilities

Our teams present consistent and high-quality execution capabilities unlike larger financial institutions and consulting firms, whose capabilities vary vastly across teams.

An Evolving Organization

With a culture that values nurturing and growth, our teams continue to advance their skills and capabilities to support our clients on a continuous basis, including pre and post engagement periods.

Innovative and Digitalized Workstyle

Through a flexible combination of office-based and remote-based work styles, we provide our advisory services based on high productivity and engagement.

Pursuing Advisory Based on Integrity

We provide sufficient amounts of information and analysis to enable our clients’ to make informed judgments, and do not engage in practices that create or result in conflicts of interests.

Our Purposes

  • To contribute to the development of society
    by becoming a trusted advisor that supports and promotes “Execution based on Sound Judgment”.
  • To create a professional firm where our members can commit
    for a longer term and faster cultivate their capabilities.
  • To be accepted by the world as a firm that adheres to
    and values integrity, health, innovation and sophistication.

We believe that a good idea or strategy is meaningless unless it is executed, and that execution based on insufficient information and consideration is likely to lead to issues. This is why we set our purpose to be a trusted advisor to our clients and to achieve excellent outcomes by supporting their “Execution Based on Sound Judgment”. Since there is a limit to what an individual can do, we have created an environment where one can commit for a longer term and faster cultivate their capabilities – this environment is the backbone of our team’s sustainable growth. In a fast-moving and increasingly complex economy, we also aim to be a firm that proactively seeks innovation while adhering to our core values of integrity, health, innovation and sophistication. We have also established our code of conduct for all members to work toward the realization of our corporate philosophy.
