Enhance Access to Finance through Vigorous International Expansion

Our group is vigorously expanding into the fast-growing Asian market and striving to enhance access to finance.
We intend to support the realization of lifestyles of abundance for local communities and contribute to the advancement of society by providing financial services that meet the needs of our customers in a sustainable manner, leveraging the know-how we have cultivated in Japan.
Starting with our presence in Thailand in 2015, we established an auto loan business company in the Philippines in 2019, and in 2021 we acquired an auto loan business company in Indonesia, creating a three-country business network in Asia. We will continue to take on challenges to provide financial services to more people.

Contributing to Enhancing Access to Finance in Japan

Orico Business Payment for SMEs (OBS)

1.請求書送付 取引先→お客様 2.カード支払い お客様→OBS 3.銀行振込 OBS→取引先 4.口座引落 カード会社→お客様

Card payment among businesses in Japan is not yet in full swing. One of the reasons for this is the limited availability of credit card payment services, such as when a buyer wishes to pay by credit card, but the seller does not accept credit card payment. ”OBS", Orico Business Payment for SMEs, is a service that enables card payment even when the seller company does not handle card payment by acting as an intermediary for inter-business settlement as a payment agent.

With the introduction of "OBS", we will help small and medium-sized enterprises solve their management issues, such as improving operational efficiency through cashless transactions, addressing personnel shortages, and improving cash flow.

Using Digital Technology to Enhance Access to Finance

新規事業・新商品の提案制度 Orico DXプレイス

In promoting DX, we believe it is important to develop human resources who are passionate about utilizing digital technology to continue providing value to our customers, so we have developed our own DX human resource development program. We have set a goal for all employees to be trained as DX promoters with basic digital technology knowledge and skills, and by March 2023, the first year of the program, more than 3,000 employees, almost the entire workforce, had obtained certification.
In addition, we have launched "Orico DX Place", an in-house proposal system to encourage all members of the group to develop new services and commercial products utilizing digital technology based on their own awareness of the problems they face.
After internal voting, the ideas proposed in the "Orico DX Place" are adopted as plans for new businesses and operational improvements, contributing to enhancing access to finance from the perspective of our business partners and customers.
We will continue to leverage digital technology to create new businesses and improve existing businesses to further contribute to the enhancement of access to finance.

Other Initiatives to Contribute to Enhancing Financial Inclusion

In addition to the aforementioned efforts to enhance access to financial products and services, we are working day and night to contribute to the improvement of social inclusion in finance, especially in the area of knowledge.

Specifically, in cooperation with external stakeholders, we conduct various educational and awareness-raising activities related to finance. We are contributing to the improvement of our customers' financial literacy through initiatives aimed at educating the next generation, public lectures on the prevention of multiple debts, and website disclosures of content for new adults.
