Japan has one of the largest financial services markets in the world. Dense branch networks exist regionally. The Japanese Bankers Association noted that in the 2000s, a succession of mergers/integrations occurred over a short period of time in order to create “Mega Banking Groups” such as the Mizuho Financial Group, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group.
