Strengths of Shinsei Bank: Solid foundation developed from the time of the former Long-Term Credit Bank of Japan

Our M&A Advisory Team was created in 1985 as a section specializing in M&A operations within the former Long-Term Credit Bank of Japan. Since then, the M&A Advisory Team has been accumulating know-how over the years and created an extensive customer base consisting of business corporations and financial institutions. We also have a strong and wide-ranging network of banking relationship managers in our head office and branches in major cities in Japan, as well as lawyers, accountants, and other outside specialists. Utilizing these assets, we flexibly respond to the diverse M&A needs of our customers, regardless of their industries and geographical areas.

Strengths of Shinsei Bank: Progressiveness and expertise

In 2000, the M&A Advisory Team started its corporate revitalization services and has been supporting a large number of companies to invite their sponsors in their process of private / legal debt restructuring. In order to meet recent needs from business owners, nowadays we are prepared to be able to provide advisory services to the owners who plan to succeed their business to potential buyers from the first phase such as preliminary preparation for business succession and identification of potential buyers. Moreover our team has been accumulating its expertise for M&A of charitable organizations which was not active in the past.
