Financial ADR System (alternative dispute resolution system)

Purpose of the systemThe purpose of this system is to promote "simple" and "prompt" resolution through a third party institution outside the courtroom by developing the procedure for resolving customer complaints on financial product transaction and disputes with financial instruments business operators.

Operation details of the 3rd party institutions and their neutralityThe third party institution provides consultations or receives complaints from customers regarding financial products transactions with financial instruments business operators, and the institution tries to help resolve the troubles by acting as an intermediary. Furthermore, the institution conducts dispute settlement operations such as mediation and arbitration to resolve conflicts when necessary. In order to ensure the fairness and neutrality of these procedures, the institution that implements the procedures must meet a certain requirement (such as it must be certified as a Certified Investor Protection Organization by the Prime Minister) based on the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act.

Points to remember for using the financial ADR systemCustomers can decide whether or not to utilize the third party institution contracted by our company at their own discretion, and the use of the process can be stopped at any time, even after they have started working on a case. When a customer requests the third party institution to conduct dispute settlement operations such as mediation and arbitration, the customer will be responsible for the costs such as a petition fee, deadline implementation fee and dispute settlement fee specified by the third party institution based on the amount subject to the dispute and the number of meetings held for the resolution process. (The cost is different for each institution, and it fluctuates by various factors. Please contact each institution for more detail.)

Ban on any relation with anti-social forces

Our company will "never conduct any transactions with anti-social forces or groups," and it is our basic policy to cut off any relationship with anti-social forces. Based on this basic policy, we have developed a manual for a specific process, and at the same time, as the internal system, we have designated a Department to promote organizational response and the person in charge of countering unjustified demands. Furthermore, while establishing close relationships with outside experts such as Actyers and the police and consulting with them as needed, we are working on activities to prevent involvement of anti-social forces in management activities and to prevent damages by the said forces.
