Greetning

The unprecedented financial crisis and global recession of the world economies seems to have been tentatively settled by overwhelming fiscal and monetary support from the governments of the affected countries. However, the global economic situation still remains unclear.

The situation is the same in Japan. Many real estate fund management companies are reevaluating their management and investment strategies to reduce fiscal risks due to confusion in global markets. The time when Japanese securitization markets get reorganized is coming.

Although the business environment is severe, we understand this is an indispensable process for the market to be normalized, and are convinced the real estate securitization market will become more widely established as one field of asset management by overcoming the current confusion and upheaval prevalent in today’s market environment.

We have gained reliable experiences to offer more advanced and pioneering services to our customers by owning licenses essential for securitization of real estate (“investment managing” license, “real estate investment adviser” license, etc) which were obtained during the early period of this market. Additionally, we currently have a partnership with the Polaris Japan group, and we will be able to fully utilize their network which operates widely with a special focus on Asia. We are certain that we will provide high-quality and valued services to our customers.

Sincerely Yours,

President Kinji Kaiho
