    Japan's top banks predict surge in credit-related costs as virus hits economy

    Full-year profit forecasts from Japan's biggest banks on Friday fell short of analysts' estimates as the lenders predicted a surge in credit-related costs in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. Japanese banks have already been struggling with ultra-low interest rates for years and said credit-related costs in the current year would reach levels not seen since the global financial crisis. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc (MUFG), the country's largest lender by assets and owner of a 24% stake in Wall Street investment bank Morgan Stanley, said it expects 550 billion yen ($5.14 billion) in net income for the year ending in March 2021, compared with an average 762.6 billion forecast in a Refinitiv poll of analysts.

    Japan banks ask customers to refrain from non-urgent branch visits amid virus

    Japanese banks are asking retail customers to refrain from non-urgent visits as bank branches continue to be busy despite calls for social distancing and a state of emergency to contain the coronavirus outbreak, the banking lobby head said. Japan does not have a mandatory lockdown, but has declared a state of emergency, urging people to cut person-to-person contacts by 70% to 80% and work from home as much as possible. While the total visitor numbers of three major banks - Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc <8306.T>, Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc <8316.T> and Mizuho Financial Group Inc <8411.T> - declined in April by 10% to 15% each, branches in some residential areas have even seen an uptick.

    In cash-loving Japan, banks still busy despite coronavirus emergency

    Japanese retail customers' love affair with cash - and some extra free time while working at home - is keeping bank branches busy despite government calls for people to reduce contacts during the state of emergency to contain a coronavirus outbreak. Japan does not have a mandatory lockdown, but Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared a state of emergency for seven prefectures including Tokyo on April 7, urging people to cut person-to-person contacts by 70% to 80% and work at home as much as possible. MUFG figures include ATMs, while SMFG numbers do not.

    Japan's MUFG bank plans more staff cuts, totalling 8,000 by 2023 - Yomiuri

    The banking arm of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc is planning to reduce staffing levels by another 2,000 people by fiscal 2023, the Yomiuri daily reported on Sunday, highlighting its struggle to maintain profits amid ultra-low interest rates. Japan's largest lender by assets had announced in 2017 that it expected 6,000 job losses through attrition by fiscal 2023. "It's true the number of staff reductions has been progressing more than the initial plan," said MUFG spokeswoman Kana Nagamitsu, adding the report was not what the bank has announced.

    MUFG reports first quarterly loss in decade on writedown at Indonesian unit

    Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc (MUFG) <8306.T>, Japan's largest lender by assets, reported a net loss in the third quarter, for the first time in nearly a decade, as its banking unit booked a one-off charge on an Indonesian subsidiary.

MUFG, which is in the midst of a leadership transition, said in December that its core unit MUFG Bank would book a one-off charge of about 207.4 billion yen ($1.9 billion) for the third quarter due to a drop in the share price of Bank Danamon <BDMN.JK>.

    Japan's MUFG Bank to book $1.9 billion hit after Indonesian unit's stock plunge

    The banking unit of Japan's Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc (MUFG) <8306.T> on Monday said it would book a one-off charge of about 207.4 billion yen ($1.9 billion) for the quarter ended Dec. 31 due to a drop in the share price of an Indonesian subsidiary. PT Bank Danamon Indonesia Tbk <BDMN.JK>, of which MUFG Bank Ltd owns 94.1%, closed at 3,950 rupiah on Monday on the Indonesia Stock Exchange's last trading day of 2019. Under accounting rules, if Danamon's shares close below 50% of the average price MUFG paid for its stake, the Japanese bank is required to reassess the value of the holding and book a one-time charge.

    SoftBank Group Corp's talks to secure $3 billion from Japan's three biggest banks have stalled as the lenders have hit internal lending limits to the firm, two people said, complicating a $9.5 billion rescue package for WeWork. The Japanese technology conglomerate is now likely to enter the new year without the WeWork financing in place, the people said, adding the banks are also concerned about the risks involved in rescuing the U.S. office-sharing startup. Mizuho Financial Group Inc, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc (MUFG) and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc (SMFG) are seeking ways to provide the financing while offsetting exposure, the people said, declining to be identified because the information is not public.

    BOJ's low-rate policy not behind megabank's fee moves - Aso

    Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Friday he did not believe the central bank's negative interest rate policy was behind a megabank's decision to consider implementing fees on some banking services. Aso made the comment after Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) confirmed it was weighing such a move, following a report in the Nikkei business daily that the bank was considering fees on dormant accounts and other services. Years of the central bank's heavy money printing have failed to fire up inflation and crushed long-term interest rates near zero, drawing criticism from financial institutions for narrowing their margins and hurting their profits.
