In reviewing the Third MTMPís first year, I would like to express my opinion as an Audit & Supervisory Board (ASB) member about meetings of the Board of Directors I attended. There are seven directors on the Shinsei Bank Groupís Board of Directors. Excluding 2 executive directors, president and deputy president, the Board comprises five outside directors. As fiscal year 2016 was the first year of the MTMP, all members of the Board sought to progress toward the planís goals and thus engaged in serious debate at every Board meeting with outside directors voicing their unfiltered views. From my stand point of view as an ASB member, I give the Board high marks as a body where governance principles were adequately applied. As an ASB member, I also checked the operational execution of executive officers from the viewpoint of regulatory compliance and appropriateness, and offered my views and advice to management in cooperation with outside directors to add to corporate value as much as possible.

As for advancing Group integration, this project made a strong start with the establishment of the virtual Group Headquarters in April 2017. This has enabled the Group to improve productivity and efficiency and provide better services to our customers and will, we hope, allow us to satisfy customer needs. I will continue in my role to actively offer my opinions and advice to management.
