With Japan’s economy challenged by an aging society, Japanese companies must reinvent themselves and implement new corporate strategies to expand into the global market.

In the last 10 years, Tokio Marine has expanded their global footprint by making multiple acquisitions in the U.S. and Europe, including their largest acquisition in the company’s history, HCC. The company’s profit structure has also shifted drastically in the last decade, with overseas business contributions expanding from 15% to 43%. Mr. Komiya was directly involved in Tokio Marine’s recent major strategy changes. His topics will include the company’s history, strategies, policies, and management philosophy.
