MUFG’s settlement risk surges fourteenfold

Risk-weighted assets for Japanese lender’s unsettled transactions cross ¥300 billion mark in the first three months of 2023

Delays on settlement produced ¥306 billion ($2.3 billion) of risk-weighted assets (RWAs) at Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group in the first three months of 2023 – more than fourteen times the previous quarter’s tally.

This was also the largest amount recorded by a Japanese bank for at least four years, and was far ahead of MUFG’s previous high of ¥87 billion set in the three months to end-September 2022.
