Message

I believe that Shinsei’s Board is very effective. The Board is balanced, with representation from management, large shareholders, experienced business people (including both in Japan and internationally) and former regulators. The Board has a majority of independent, outside directors. The Board has about the right number of members to be effective: not too large, not too small. The Board operates cohesively and has continued to improve its focus on the most important strategic and management issues.
The Board’s challenges include finding new, high-quality directors who will bring experience and diversity to the Board over time, and to spend the majority of its time on the most important issues rather than less significant details.
