Institutional Investor 2024 Japan Executive Team
Sekisui House Ranked 1st in Most Honored Companies

Sekisui House, Ltd. / 2024.5.17

Sekisui House, Ltd. has been selected for the top in the 2024 Japan Executive Team Most Honored Companies (Construction sector) by Institutional Investor, a world-renowned U.S. financial magazine, and ranked 1st in the Best ESG Program and Best CFO rankings. The company also placed 2nd in the Best CEO ranking. This is the fourth consecutive year since 2021 that Sekisui House has been ranked 1st for Best ESG Program.

Sekisui House contributes to the sustainable development in the housing sector both in Japan and overseas, while actively and comprehensively disclosing information on its initiatives and engaging in dialog with institutional investors and analysts through its domestic and overseas IR activities. These efforts earned the company high marks in all areas, including Best CEO (rated on their credibility, leadership, and quality of communication) and Best CFO (rated on their ability of capital allocation, financial stewardship, and quality of communication), leading to its selection as a Most Honored Company.

In fiscal 2023, the first year of the Sixth Mid-Term Management Plan, Sekisui House sought to achieve sustainable growth in corporate value by setting financial targets such as improving ROE and reducing capital costs in line with its business strategy. It also worked to promote understanding of its business plans through briefings, individual interviews, and other means of enhancing communication with investors. Another means by which the company enhances information transparency through its IR activities is the publication of a Value Report devoted to the comprehensive disclosure of financial and ESG information. Its selection as a Most Honored Company this year was in recognition of such initiatives.

These rankings have been held by Institutional Investor since 2013 to select the publicly traded Japanese companies with superior investor relations activities. The selections are based on voting by buy-side analysts, money managers and sell-side researchers at securities firms and financial institutions that cover the region, including those who cast and received votes in this year’s All-Japan Research Team surveys. Results reflect the opinions from 510 investors, portfolio managers and analysts from 227 firms, nominating a total of 488 companies.

To maintain and enhance its position as a leader in ESG management, Sekisui House will continue to pursue proactive information disclosure and communication that earns the understanding of its stakeholders.
