Since the mid-1990s, the Japanese banking industry has been mired in the problem of high non-performing loans. In tune with the consolidation process in the industry since the late 1990s, Mitsubishi Tokyo Financial Group (MTFG) and United Financial of Japan (UFJ) have initiated discussions for their proposed merger that is to be completed by September 2005. The merger is expected to create the world's biggest bank in terms of total assets.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the potential synergies that will accrue to the combined entity that can probably help the entire Japanese banking sector in its recovery process.
