Japan – the view from the top: Tatsufumi Sakai, Mizuho
Mizuho 'intends to transition to the next generation of financial services' – here the bank's CEO explains what that means.
"We are faced with three megatrends,” says Tatsufumi Sakai, president and group chief executive of Mizuho. “One is data, one is the shrinking population and ageing society, and the third is globalization.”
When Japanese banks want to show they mean business in the face of a challenge, they typically do so by proudly announcing a longer plan than the previous one.
