Asia & Oceania Administration Department - Productivity and Quality Management

Overview of Division/Department

Productivity & Quality Management (PQM) is to support the strategic objectives and plans set forth by the management of Asia & Oceania Administration Department.

PQM is responsible for planning, promoting and coordinating activities necessary to maintain and improve the quality of Mizuho's operational infrastructures. Its primary focus is on productivity gain projects and innovation, to review new initiatives, to identify operations key risks, improve service quality and to perform regulatory reporting.

PQM comprises the ‘Productivity Management Team' (including Innovation Team) and ‘Quality Management Team'.

MIZUHO Innovation Centre is a strategic innovation entity within Mizuho Corporate Banking, combining technology excellence with thought leadership and entrepreneurial spirit. It is a new team to provide game-changing solutions in close collaboration with Middle Office, Back Office, FinTech, customer and other internal Banking units. By exploring unconventional ideas and developing inspiring proofs of concepts, we push the state of the art in computer science and its applied fields to provide Mizuho with foresight into future trends.

This team will sit outside of the Mizuho's IT department, but will still work closely with members from that department. Reason for the formation of this team outside of IT is because the IT Department has to support the entire bank (including infrastructure, Support, security, BAU etc) and may not have the bandwidth or expertise to dedicate resources to the Asia & Ocenia Administration Department.

Mizuho runs a Corporate Banking (with quasi-investment Banking) business here in Singapore. Singapore is the regional HQ while Japan is the global HQ with approximately 850 staff locally. Mizuho covers all major Corporate Banking products including Loans, Treasury, Cash, Trade, Treasury, Syndications etc.
