Acom (アコム Akomu?, TYO: 8572) is one of Japan's largest consumer loan companies, or sarakin. The name "Acom" stands for Affection, Confidence and Moderation. The company was founded by Masao Kinoshita, who was later replaced by his eldest son Kyosuke Kinoshita, the current chairman of the company. In addition to providing loans, Acom issues credit cards.
The founders (Maruito/Kinoshita) control about 40% of the shares, another 40% are controlled by MUFG. The company stock is thus very tightly held.
