Corporate - related Question
T&D Insurance Group consists of three life insurance companies.
- Taiyo Life: centering on the retail household market,
- Daido Life: centering on the small- and medium-sized enterprise market, and
- T&D Financial Life: centering on the independent insurance agent market (financial institutions and insurance shop agents).
The Group aims at enhancing its corporate value by maximizing the operating revenue of these three life insurance companies while they capitalize on their respective strengths to the utmost.
For more details of the Group, please view "About T&D Insurance Group" page.
In the belief that the T&D Insurance Group would be a going concern which will continue to "try and discover" something new in order to maximize the Group's corporate value, we named the "T&D Insurance Group" by taking the initial letters of "Try" and "Discover".
The first objective of establishing a holding company is to diversify our business portfolio. Our business will be integrated among strong niche players with unique business models which allow each unit to maintain independent businesses. Such business models will enable the Group to grow steadily through business risk diversification. We decided to adopt the best option of establishing a holding company because integration through merger would reduce each company's unique strength.
The second objective is to increase management maneuverability. The holding company will dedicate itself to group management while each life insurance company promotes sales. Such a management structure enables the Group to flexibly allocate its management resources to profitable and promising areas. In addition, the Group can make investments in M&A and new business areas aggressively, while keeping each company's independence and without risking existing businesses.
The third objective is to enhance competitiveness. By thoroughly streamlining common infrastructures, we can reallocate redundant management resources to highly profitable business areas. Furthermore, since the holding company is to be listed, the market capitalization will increase compared with that of each existing company, thus improving credibility of the Group and enhancing Group presence as a whole. As a result, we can pursue management from a broader view than before, thereby enabling us to survive in a competitive market.
Based on the Group's Corporate Philosophy and Management Vision, under the holding company structure, we are aiming to increase the T&D Insurance Group's corporate value steadily and sustainably by maximizing the uniqueness and the specialization of our three life insurance companies in their respective speciality markets.
Taiyo Life, Daido Life and T&D Financial Life are the core subsidiaries of T&D Holdings, Inc.
T&D Holdings decides the Group's management strategy and appropriately allocates the Group's management resources in a bid to enhance the Group's corporate value and manage the overall Group's profits and risks. Under the holding company, the three life insurance subsidiaries are seeking to maximize their own operating revenues as independent business units.
For more details, please view "Corporate Governance" page.

T&D Insurance Group aims to sustainably increase the Embedded Value ("EV"), which is one of the indicators for evaluating the corporate value of a life insurance company.
In order to sustainably increase the EV, "robust growth in sales results and the expansion of policy in force," "appropriate profit and risk management," and "realization of greater efficiency" are essential. We will clear up these challenges with a sense of speed and strive for the increase in corporate value.
Embedded Value ("EV") is the sum of the adjusted book value belonging to the shareholders and the existing business value derived from all existing policies. EV is one of the major indicators for evaluating the corporate value of life insurance companies in Europe and Canada.
For details of EV, please view "EV" page.
For results of EV, please view "Financial Data (Embedded Value)" page.
We consider current market value to be the most objective primary means of assessing corporate value, and we employ EV, which is closely linked with market value, as the yardstick for measuring the T&D Insurance Group's corporate value.
