Providing a mechanism to embody the value of information

Our corporate philosophy is to provide the mechanisms that embody the value of information, and we have consistently developed our business with a focus on information. We chose the financial market as our first focus because it is the market most directly related to determining value through information. We have applied elements such as AI and Big Data in the field a large amount of financial and economic information, and have achieved a large amount of data analysis and the generation of huge amounts of content. We have succeeded in providing information comprehensiveness and rapidity that could not be achieved by conventional human-dependent information provision, while at the same time ensuring the high quality of the information. In this way, we have created an information revolution by using our unique technology to create a technology-based information provision system that differs from conventional systems that relies on human resources, and we have earned a high reputation from in the financial and economic information field among both individuals and corporations.
The need for financial and economic information is expected to expand while diversifying as the national policy "shifting from savings to asset building" progresses. As a leading company in the field of financial and economic information, we will continue to contribute to the realization of a more affluent society by responding to these expanding needs through the use of technologies.
After being listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange Mothers market in March 2019, the Company expanded its business domains into the DX field by inviting REIT information vendor Prop Tech plus Inc. to join the Group in December 2019 and Robot Fund Co., Ltd., which is involved in the digital transformation of the investment trust industry, in June 2020. The name of our company, MINKABU THE INFONOID, represents our business domain. The word of INFONOID is the combination of the words "information" and "noid", meaning one who is obsessed with information. We will continue to provide services that contribute to investors by fulfilling our role as an information infrastructure in the financial markets with a commitment to information, and we will pursue the potential of our technology and develop fields of application for our technology outside of the financial sector, in an effort to continuously increase the value of our shares.
