Mizuho Holdings, Inc. (株式会社みずほホールディングス, Kabushiki-gaisha Mizuho Hōrudingusu) was a Japanese bank holding company. It was established in 2000 through the consolidation of Fuji Bank, Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank, and the Industrial Bank of Japan. The company was reorganized on April 1, 2002, when its subsidiaries were realigned and rebranded with the Mizuho name. All of the retail branches of Fuji Bank were transferred to Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank, which was then renamed Mizuho Bank, Ltd. The corporate banking business of Fuji Bank was then consolidated with the Industrial Bank of Japan and rebranded as Mizuho Corporate Bank, Ltd.

On March 12, 2003, the firm became a wholly owned subsidiary of Mizuho Financial Group. On October 1, 2005, Mizuho Holdings ceased to be a bank holding company when all of its subsidiaries, including Mizuho Bank, Ltd. and Mizuho Corporate Bank, Ltd., were transferred to the direct control of Mizuho Financial Group. Mizuho Holdings was subsequently renamed Mizuho Financial Strategy Co., Ltd. and now focuses on providing advisory services.

Headquarters are located in Tokyo, Japan.
