HistoryEdit

MHCB was created in April 2002 by the merger of the Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank and Fuji Bank's corporate and investment banking division with the Industrial Bank of Japan.[2] Backed by Mizuho Financial Group's credit ratings and financial solidity, MHCB was positioned as a major player in financial markets and among Japan's leading corporate and investment banks by market share.[1] The brokerage arm Mizuho Securities was also a primary dealer in the U.S. Treasury securities market.[3] MHCB opened a branch in Wuxi, China in 2006 in a bid to support transactions with Japanese companies operating in the city.[4] The bank also had a branch in the Philippines, partnering with the Bank of the Philippine Islands.[5] In 2013, it merged with the former Mizuho Bank, with the unified institution being "Mizuho Bank".
