New Year’s Greetings 2016 from BTMU (Holland)

Happy New Year!

As President of Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ (Holland) N.V. (BTMUH), I would like to thank all of you for your patronage, support and kind cooperation in 2015 and wish you all the best for 2016.

As you might be aware, the environment surrounding us has remained challenging due to the global stagnant economic situation and the remaining geopolitical risks across Europe, Middle East and Africa, whilst the financial markets have also become increasingly competitive.

However, we see many opportunities and aim to continue growing our business in 2016 by focusing on three core business strategies: to capture new investment money flow into the Netherlands; to expand business in Central and Eastern Europe; and to develop business with non-Japanese corporate clients as well as Japanese.

In addition, our clients’ needs have become increasingly diversified and sophisticated. In response, we have been building a strong business foundation and framework which can respond to the various requirements of our clients who are expanding their wide-ranging businesses across Europe.

As I firmly believe it is our mission to fulfill the expectations of all our clients and to serve as a foundation of the economy and society in Europe, my staff and I all look forward to serving you with our best products and services.

Kind regards,

Nobuhiro Matsumoto
Managing Director, President
