History

Mizuho’s creation dates back to 1873 when Japan’s first national bank, Dai-ichi Bank, was founded. In later years, a network of different banks established by the Japanese government began to expand to guarantee the best banking services of that time to the people and institutions that required it.

In 1952, the bank arrived in Europe. From there, it expanded through Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, establishing 20 offices in several countries. That allowed it to have the confidence of the largest banks in the world.

The bank was founded on April 1, 2002, by the union of the banks that had been established at the beginning. Those banks are Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank, Fuji Bank, and the Industrial Bank of Japan. Once united, Mizuho Bank, together with Mizuho Corporate Bank, became banking subsidiaries of Mizuho Financial Group.

In the following years, it established subsidiaries in some countries. Mizuho appeared on the New York Stock Exchange in 2006. In 2013, Mizuho Bank and Mizuho Corporate Bank merged to form Mizuho Bank Ltd.
