    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    More active approach to capital usage. Happy to be a commercial bank and operate across many countries to support client needs

    Cons

    Very disfunctional. Japanese management are more focused on managing their next career steps than improving the business. Technology, policies, processes are all of especially poor standard vs non-Japanese banks and limit competitiveness

    Advice to Management

    Look for more opportunities to westernise the bank from top down, thereby having a more client/employee friendly approach. Senior mgmt should be rewarding Japanese middle mgmt for taking sensible risk, restructuring their businesses, etc
