We conduct asset management from a long-term perspective, in order to ensure that we maximize the payment of steady dividends to life insurance policyholders over the long term.
In the course of investing assets, and in light of our social responsibilities as a life insurance company, we will conduct asset management based on consideration of environmental, social and governance issues according to asset characteristics. By thriving in harmony with the environment and communities, we seek to steadily grow together with other companies and the global economy as a whole.
Our main ESG investment initiatives are as follows:
●Theme investing (e.g.: Green Bonds, Social Bonds, investment and finance for renewable energy-related businesses, etc.)
●Engagement (e.g.: engagement based on the theme of ESG issues in stocks and bonds)
●Exercise of voting rights (e.g.: we exercised voting rights on all proposals with respect to domestic stocks)
●Integration (We consider a company's non-financial information such as ESG information in the process of deciding investments and financing of equities, bonds and loans.)
●Negative screening (We prohibit investing in or financing companies that manufacture cluster munitions, biological weapons, antipersonnel landmines or chemical weapons.)
