Corporate Social Responsibility

Who We Are

Building upon Daiwa Securities Group Inc.’s corporate principles, DCMA recognizes its mission is to contribute to the development of society and the economy through its daily operations. This is essential to the success of our mission and sustainable growth with society — deepening the bond of trust we have with our stakeholders, customers, shareholders, employees, and communities.

DCMA supports the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”) adopted by the United Nations in 2015. The SDGs are an essential concerted effort to make the world a better place to live. We believe environmental preservation is necessary for both promoting prosperity and protecting the planet. DCMA understands that ending poverty must be coupled with strategies that build economic growth and address social needs including but not limited to education, healthcare, and job opportunities. The sustainable development of society is beneficial to our future survival as well as our business activities. We take an active approach by ensuring our overall mission conforms to social standards and corporate expectations, which will increase awareness of SDGs among our stakeholders.

Charity Friday

DCMA’s Charity Friday, established in 2001, permits employees to wear jeans upon a $5 donation to a specified charity. In 2014, DCMA began matching employee donations to help strengthen the firm’s commitment to giving back to local communities, especially in the areas of education, poverty, healthcare, natural disaster and other important causes. DCMA’s ongoing commitment to philanthropy and the success of Charity Friday led the firm to double the match of employee donations.

Japan Day

DCMA is a proud corporate sponsor of Japan Day. Japan Day @ Central Park is an annual event organized by the Japanese community of New York to promote a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and to say “Thank you, New York!” Since 2007, Japan Day @ Central Park has quickly become a tradition that has captured the interest of New Yorkers.
