History

The Shizuoka Bank was established on March 1, 1943, with the merger of the Shizuoka Sanjyu-go Ginkō (静岡35銀行) and the Enshu Ginkō (遠州銀行). It has been listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange since October 1961. The Shizuoka Bank maintains strong ties to the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group through joint venture subsidiaries for credit cards and stock brokerage. Its New York branch was located in the New York World Trade Center at the time of the September 11, 2001, attacks, but none of its employees were killed.

In 2002, Shizuoka Bank was praised by rating agency Fitch, which noted its "overall performance and strength indicators are superior to any of the major Japanese banks." [1]
