Selected as a Constituent of “FTSE Blossom Japan Sector Relative Index”

Money Forward, Inc. has been selected for the first time as a constituent of “FTSE Blossom Japan Sector Relative Index (“the Index”).” The Index is created by FTSE Russell, one of the leading ESG rating agencies, and evaluates companies that excel in ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) practices. Approximately 600 companies with relatively high scores are selected for inclusion. The Index is also adopted as a passive investment benchmark for ESG investments by the Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF).

■ About the “FTSE Blossom Japan Sector Relative Index”
“FTSE Blossom Japan Sector Relative Index” is constructed by FTSE Russell, a global index provider. The Index reflects the performance of Japanese companies that demonstrate strong environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices in their respective sectors, and is designed to be sector-neutral. Also, to promote the transition to a low carbon economy, companies with particularly high greenhouse gas emissions are included in the Index only if their improvement efforts are evaluated using the TPI Management Quality Score.

■Our Effort toward Sustainability
Under the mission “Money Forward. Move your life forward.”, we support each and every individual through our services and businesses, to empower users by unlocking their possibilities and drastically enrich their everyday life. We have organized and set three key themes of materiality based on our two management foundations: “penetration of Money Forward’s Mission/Vision/Values/Culture”, “Governance that balances offense and defense”. Our three materialities consist of “User Forward”, “Society Forward”, and “Talent Forward”. In 2022, we set up the Sustainability Committee to bolster our efforts. In addition, we have been disclosing our sustainability initiatives through the corporate website, Integrated Report and ESG data book.
As a result of these steady efforts, we have been included in the Index. Moving forward, we will continue to strengthen our sustainability initiatives and actively disclose information to achieve our vision for society. We are determined to promote further initiatives and disclosures to realize this vision.
