    Shinhan Bank Japan -- Moody's: Outlook for Japan's banking system is stable, although challenges apparent

    Moody's Japan K.K. says that its outlook for Japan's banking system is stable, as it has been since 2012, reflecting the expectation that the banks will continue to have strong liquidity at home and sufficient capital, even though pressure on profitability will persist and asset risks are slowly increasing. "Support will come from a stable operating environment, and we forecast that Japan's GDP will continue to increase, by 1.1% in 2018 and 1.0% in 2019, while the unemployment rate will decline further," says Tetsuya Yamamoto, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer. "Japan's continued accommodative monetary policy will help the economy sustain growth and, if the Bank of Japan (BOJ) tightens monetary policy, which we do not expect to occur during this outlook period, higher rates will help increase interest income for banks," says Yamamoto.

Global banks such as JPMorgan Chase & Co. are also seeking to diversify away from finance graduates to adapt their workforces to a rapidly changing business environment.

    Japan's Mizuho to take on more lending risk to arrest decline in profitability: CEO

    Mizuho Financial Group Inc (8411.T) will shed its conservative approach to lending and take on greater risk at home and abroad, its new chief executive told Reuters, as Japan's second-largest bank by assets looks to reverse its falling profitability. Mizuho is the least profitable of Japan's three mega-banks. Unlike peers Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc , Mizuho has not splurged abroad in search of growth to offset stagnation at home where aggressive central bank policy eats into lending income.

    Mizuho's new leader tackles makeover of megabank

    When Tatsufumi Sakai was named chief executive and president of Mizuho Financial Group this year, many bankers and investors were surprised. The low-key book lover represented a sharp contrast with Yasuhiro Sato, his bold, charismatic predecessor, who was vocal about his ambitions for Japan's second-largest lender but presided over a sharp decline during the last three years. Sakai wasn't considered a favourite for the top job.

    Mizuho Chases Riskier Clients Overseas, Trying to Revive Profit

    Mizuho Financial Group Inc. is becoming more aggressive in chasing riskier clients outside Japan as it seeks to reverse the recent decline in its full-year profit, according to Chief Executive Officer Tatsufumi Sakai. The Tokyo-based lender may have been a “little conservative” in adjusting its asset profile toward non-investment grade assets overseas and away from lower-margin clients, Sakai said in an interview this week. Like other Japanese banks, Mizuho has been chasing higher-yielding assets as it attempts to offset the effect on its lending business of razor-thin domestic interest rates.

    Laggard Rupee Poised for Strong Rebound Next Year, Mizuho Says

    A more muscular Indian economy and the likely fizzling out of the dollar rally next year may help the rupee shed the tag of Asia’s worst-performing currency, according to Mizuho Bank Ltd. The currency will strengthen around 7 percent to 64 per dollar by the end of June 2019 from current levels, aided by an improvement in government finances that have been hit by high oil prices, the lender forecast. “Incrementally, things are not likely to be as bad in 2019 as they are in 2018,” said Tirthankar Patnaik, chief strategist at Mizuho in Mumbai.

    Mizuho Profit Rises as Banks Get Little Respite From BOJ

    Mizuho Financial Group Inc.’s first-quarter profit rose, as gains from fee businesses and sales of its shareholdings helped the Japanese lender offset the effects of the central bank’s continuing monetary stimulus program. Net income climbed 36 percent to 161 billion yen ($1.4 billion) in the three months ending June 30 from a year earlier, the Tokyo-based bank said in a statement on Tuesday. Shares of Mizuho and its peers fell earlier after the Bank of Japan said it will keep interest rates very low for an “extended period of time” to achieve its inflation target.
