The testamentary substitute trust “Gift to the Family” is a product that pays out money to a designated recipient (heir), such as family members of the customer, at the time of inheritance, with the three banks of the Yamaguchi Financial Group acting as the intermediaries between the customers (settlor and beneficiary) and ORIX Bank for the signing of trust agreements.

Going forward, the Yamaguchi Financial Group and ORIX Bank will continue to work on providing even better products and improving services so as to widely respond to the diverse asset inheritance requests of customers.
