Risk Japan 2011: Japan, Europe need to team up to address Dodd-Frank extraterritoriality

Naohiko Matsuo, Nishimura & Asahi (l) and Kei Kodachi, Nomura

The worst-case scenario for Japanese banks is that their US operations will require substantially more capital and that operating units in the US will fail to receive exemptions from the act, according to comments made by speakers during a panel discussion at Risk Japan 2011.
