Message

On this occasion, I have been appointed as an outside member of Shinsei Bank’s Audit & Supervisory Board. Previously, I have served as outside director and outside audit and supervisory board member for several companies and been involved in corporate management on numerous occasions through my work as a lawyer, but this marks my first appointment as a bank director. I feel immensely honored but at the same time I am keenly aware of the steepness of the learning curve and the seriousness of my responsibilities. On the other hand, as an independent Audit & Supervisory Board member, while studying the industry in depth, I think that it will be essential for me to continuously maintain a constant sense of distance and the objectivity of someone who is not fully rooted in the industry, and I consider the maintaining of that balance to be one of my assignments.
Mainly focusing on the law, which is my area of specialty, and corporate governance, as an outside member of the Bank’s Audit & Supervisory Board, I will be hoping to contribute to an improvement in the Bank’s medium to long-term corporate value and to contribute to all the Bank’s stakeholders as well by conducting audits and providing oversight to ensure that the executive branch of management takes appropriate levels of risk.
