In recent years, Japan’s major corporations have
increasingly relied on the corporate bond market as a

of corporate bonds increased more than 46 percent, from
30.8 trillion yen to about 45 trillion yen (Table 1).1 At the
same time, loans from Japan’s banking sector decreased
about 17 trillion yen. As the corporate bond market grew,
the spreads between the yields on Japanese corporate and
government bonds widened dramatically.

Remember, your supplier’s promises to you are your promises to your customers.
“Risk concentrations are arguably the single most important cause of major problems
in banks”.1 On the one hand, dealing with concentration risk is important for
the survival of individual banks; therefore, banks should be interested in a proper
management of risk concentrations on their own. On the other hand, the Basel
Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) has found that nine out of the thirteen
analyzed banking crises were affected by risk concentrations,2 which shows that
this issue is important for the stability of the whole banking system.
The major producers were developing new products that utilized digital copying technology as
opposed to light/lens technology. Some analysts expected that market growth in the nineties would be
driven by "smart" multifunction devices that combined copying, faxing, scanning, and electronic
printing functions. Competitors with direct sales forces would have an advantage because the
complexity and pricing of these machines was too high for effective dealer distribution. Color copying
represented another potential growth area.

In writing this book, I summoned perspectives and experiences
that extend many years into the past, to the early days of my career. I
drew upon a wealth of knowledge, insights, and wisdom imparted by
an array of people who have helped me grow professionally and per-sonally over the past two decades. The available space in this book and
the limitations of my long-term memory prevent me from recogniz-ing everyone who has had a positive (or at least important) influence
on my development and the formation of the ideas articulated in this

Even if an entity otherwise holds a “substantial
position” in swaps, it would not qualify as a major swap
participant if those positions are held for “hedging or
mitigating commercial risk,” among other exceptions.
However, the proposed deﬁ nition of “hedging or mitigat-
ing commercial risk” would exclude swap positions held
for speculative purposes.
21 As most private funds would
presumably be deemed to be holding their swap positions
for speculative purposes, that exclusion is unlikely to
apply to them.
