Tokyo, Japan – Minsetsu, Inc. (Representative Director & CEO Yuki Nakayasu, headquarter in Chuo-ku, Tokyo) announced the conclusion of a business consignment agreement for interview scheduling with Mizuho Securities Co., Ltd.

Minsetsu, Inc. provides paid services for arranging interview schedules in an IR communication platform called “Minna-no Setsumeikai” (Briefing for Everyone) and will now provide it to customers (institutional investors) of Mizuho Securities Co., Ltd.

The IR meeting schedule arranging service promotes digital transformation (DX) work and greatly improves efficiency of existing IR interview arrangement processes by phone calls and e-mails aiming for smoother communication between investors and IR representatives.

This service visualizes communications starting from the point of interview inquiries to scheduling a meeting time on the web and also consolidates the process of arranging interviews with multiple companies. It enables investors to send a single interview request to multiple companies at the same time when there are hundreds of companies requesting interviews. Since it is possible to contact IR representatives directly when arranging interview schedules, it minimizes time lag of conversation and arranges schedules efficiently. Furthermore, by equipping a function for preventing double booking of date and time of interviews and an automatic alerting function for investors and IR representatives, it eliminates human errors.

Service Features

Interview with C-level Managers

It is possible to interview not only with IR representatives but also with senior management of the corporates. For instance, approximately 70% of interviews using the service in 2021 was with senior management.

Global Support

Meeting Arrangement Service
