Moody's Japan K.K. says that Japan's two largest banking groups by assets -- Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. (MUFG, A1 stable) and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group, Inc. (SMFG, A1 stable) -- share similar credit strengths, while both are also exposed to the contingent liabilities posed by their leasing subsidiaries. "While the primary banking subsidiaries of the two groups have baseline credit assessments (BCAs) of a3, indicating similar credit strength, capitalization and profitability are relative strengths for SMFG, while a greater degree of geographic diversification underpins MUFG's credit profile," says Shunsaku Sato, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer.
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.
Moody's Japan K.K. has affirmed the commercial paper ratings of Prime-2 of Hitachi Capital Corporation (Hitachi Capital) and Hitachi Capital America Corp. At the same time, Moody's has removed stable outlook at the issuer level as short-term ratings do not carry rating outlooks.
Saburo Araki said he’s giving a high priority to what he describes as the difficult task of stamping out staff harassment since he took over in April as head of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc.’s brokerage venture with Morgan Stanley. “I have come across several harassment complaints from employees since I arrived,” said Araki, chief executive officer at Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities Co. “I want to eradicate it, but it will be difficult to root out,” he said in an interview in Tokyo. In Japan, awareness of power harassment, known locally as “power hara,” has been increasing due to high-profile sports scandals and rising instances of workplace bullying in a country where respect for authority is prized.
Moody's Japan K.K. says that the fiscal 2017 results for Japan's three megabanks show the challenges they continue to face in improving core revenue, both at home and overseas, although their buildup in capital is credit positive. "Also on a positive note, asset quality improved at all three banks from already strong levels, while credit costs declined, and retained earnings and reduced equity holdings raised capital ratios," says Tetsuya Yamamoto, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer. The three megabanks are Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. (MUFG, A1 stable), Mizuho Financial Group, Inc. (A1 stable) and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group, Inc. (SMFG, A1 stable).
