Amid heightened global uncertainty, Chiba Bank’s credit quality remains stable primarily due to its strong franchise in its home market in Chiba Prefecture. Its total assets on a consolidated basis are the largest among banks headquartered in the prefecture, with leading shares of both deposits and loans. Its solid business position is complemented by its conservative management policy, which limits its exposure to speculative investments and to credit risks associated with the stock market.
In addition, the bank maintains strong liquidity in its balance sheet. Its deposits are liquid and its credit cards have low default rates. The bank’s loan portfolio consists of diversified small-lot credits to SMEs and mortgage loans to individual customers. Its credit costs have not gone above our normalized loss ratio in the past five years. The bank is able to limit volatility in its earnings by maintaining a large equity cushion and by diversifying its revenue streams. The bank also limits its credit-related expenses through cost-cutting measures. Chiba Capital Financial Group
