UNIVA Oak Holdings, Inc. was founded in 1868, the last year of the Edo period (1603-1868), as a manufacturer of fishing nets. The company later grew to become the largest manufacturer of fishing nets in Japan and went public in 1949. In the 21st century, the company began to select and concentrate on investment banking, and has been providing financial support to listed companies, mainly in the area of business restructuring. In order to realize stable growth, we are in the midst of further evolution, advocating “value co-creation business” that goes beyond the framework of the financial business.

In the 21st century society in which we live, financial technology has evolved based on the development of industrial technology in the 20th century. However, I now recognize that the profit generated by business and human happiness are not in the same proportional relationship as they were in the 20th century. In order for people to lead happy lives in the midst of such changes, I believe that “Philosophy” will become even more important for companies as well as “Technology”.

Each company and person has its own “Value. The concept of “UNIVA (Unite the Values)” is to create greater value by “uniting” these values. We will network the values of various companies from the standpoint of a holding company. UNIVA Oak Holdings, Inc. will promote “value co-creation business” by connecting and enhancing the value of each company.

In the past, our company provided value to the world with nets (fishing nets),
Today, we are a company that creates value worldwide through a network of companies (organic collaboration). As a company that can adapt to changes in the global economy, we will continue to innovate to achieve sustainable growth and increase our corporate value, and we will strive to be a company that is trusted by and meets the expectations of all of our stakeholders.
