In Japan, retail money totals $16 trillion, the second largest amount in the world after the United States. Despite negligible interest rates at banks, most Japanese households hold their financial assets in savings and bank deposits. Depending on where individuals choose to invest funds, Japanese retail money has the potential not only to influence Japan’s economy but also to impact the world economy. In this program, Oki Matsumoto, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Monex Group, discusses new trends in Japan’s retail money and their impact on the global economy.
