ERM-based Group Management

The MS&AD Group endeavors to increase its earnings power and capital efficiency while maintaining financial soundness. Toward this end, it practices Group management based on an enterprise risk management (ERM) cycle. It allocates capital to its businesses in accord with its Group Risk Appetite Statement. Its businesses take risks with the allocated capital. The Group exercises appropriate risk control, through the monitoring of return on risk (ROR) and other metrics. Under the Medium-Term Management Plan (2022–25), the ERM Committee will work to enhance the evaluation and management of each business in the Group, considering capital, risk, and return, and to improve the Group’s capital efficiency by flexibly allocating capital to more capital-efficient business opportunities, such as investments in growth businesses.

Integrated Management of Risk, Returns and Capital

To realize its management vision, the Group formulates medium-term management plans in accord with its Group Risk Appetite Statement and holistically manages risk (integrated risk amount), returns (Group Adjusted Profit), and capital (NAV) with the aim of maintaining financial soundness and boosting capital efficiency and risk/return.

Identification and Management of Risks

Our Group designates important risk events that should be addressed by management as “Group Material Risks,” formulates a management action plan, and periodically monitors the status of each risk. In addition to considering the correspondent relationship of each risk event, we are working to control risks based on the scenario of the occurrence of the risk event to be addressed.


Listed below are events with the potential for medium- to long-term impacts on Group management and events for which the impact and timing are difficult to grasp at present but about which we need to maintain awareness. As Group Emerging Risks, our Group periodically monitors these events.
