Sompo Research Institute Inc. is the think tank of the Sompo Holdings Group. The Institute was established in 1987 as a commemorating project for the 100-year foundation anniversary of Yasuda Fire & Marine Insurance Company (currently: Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Insurance Inc.). To date, we have been working on fundamental research and studies in areas that are deeply connected to the insurance industry, such as product liability, consumer protection laws, environmental countermeasures, and trends of European and North American insurance companies. Our research outcomes are open to public at this website.
Standing for volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity, VUCA best describes today's world. Not only the Sompo Holdings Group has been meeting multiple needs of our customers through a variety of businesses such as pension welfare and elderly care, but also it is now changing into an enterprise group which provides the highest quality services contributing to our customers' security, health and wellbeing.
Based on such background, in addition to the basic researches on politics, economy, trade issues, etc., we now conduct researches for social security, healthcare, and the new industries which are realized by various digital technologies and so forth without being limited to insurance.
In other words, our mission is to identify emerging social issues that may newly occur and to explore new businesses which can contribute to the solution of such issues in a future-oriented manner.
We do our best to widely disseminate information obtained through our researches and studies to society and to become a research institute that supports our customers.
