Kenedix is dedicated to realizing the full potential of real estate
Since the foundation of our company in 1995, Japan's real estate and capital markets have changed in many ways. Our business started with the emergence and expansion of the real estate securitization market. Next was the creation and growth of the J-REIT market. The global financial crisis severely impacted our operating environment and now Japan's real estate market is rebounding in part due to Abenomics. Amid all of these events, Kenedix has grown steadily while entering new business domains. I am very grateful for the support from client investors, financial institutions, business partners, shareholders and many others that was vital to our success over the past 20 years.
We have established two new guidelines for our operations. One is a mission statement: Kenedix is dedicated to realizing the full potential of real estate. The other is Kenedix Vision 2025: Delivering Growth via the Kenedix Model. As the first step toward accomplishing this long-term vision, we also have established and announced a three-year medium-term management plan (2015-2017) in 2015 that is called Partners in Growth 2017.
Kenedix Vision 2025 defines the Kenedix Model as holding properties by using funds that are established and managed by the Kenedix Group rather than owning real estate directly. We plan to use this model to achieve sustained growth that is underpinned by our core strengths: independence, flexibility and creativity, innovation, expertise and transparency.
Our objective is the growth in corporate value by following our long-term vision and achieving the goals of the new management plan. We are also dedicated to meeting the expectations of client investors, business partners, employees, shareholders, and all other stakeholders.
I ask for your support as the Kenedix Group continues to make progress with our mission of realizing the full potential of real estate.
