Customers

The MS&AD Insurance Group Basic Policy for Responding to Customer Communications was formulated with the aim of receiving a wide variety of feedback from customers, including inquiries, requests, and grievances, among others, to be utilized for quality improvement. To offer products and services that satisfy customers as required by this basic policy, domestic Group insurance companies have formulated a “Customer-first Policy in the Business Operations” to help them extensively listen to the voices of customers and make continuous efforts to improve the quality of our products and services, as well as our operations.
Furthermore, we endeavor to understand our stakeholders’ needs and expectations, and for this end, together with management level discussions, have constructed various schemes that help to improve the quality of the products and services we offer.
