Basic Policy on Corporate Governance

JASDEC's corporate governance structure is divided into shareholders meetings, supervision of the management and execution of the operations. Regarding supervision of the management, the Board of Directors has been established to determine management plans and basic policies and so on, and the Nominating Committee, Compensation Committee, Audit Committee and Risk Committee have been established under the Board of Directors. The Audit Committee Office has been established under the Audit Committee. Regarding execution of the operations, each department is placed under the Executive Officers, and the Executive Committee, composed of all Executive Officers, discusses and makes decisions on important execution of the operations. Internal Audit Office, which is responsible for internal audits, has been established under the President and CEO. The Integrated Risk Management Council and Risk Management Department have been established under CRO (Chief Risk Officer). In addition, the Advisory Committees, composed of participants, have been established to advise Executive Officers on matters relating to running of the operations.


The symbol represents the people-to-people or informational "connection", and the asymmetrical shape emphasizes a more human and warm "connection" rather than a mechanical connection. In addition, the three circles represent investors (individual investors, institutional investors, etc.), issuers (business companies, etc.), market intermediaries (securities companies, banks, asset management companies, etc.) that support Japan's financial and capital markets together with us.
The colors of the symbol, green and blue, are images of the ground and the sea, in other words, those of the earth, and express the desire to support sustainable growth.
