The degree of risk taken and the degree of return obtained vary depending on the investment target of the investment trust. Stocks, for example, are said to be more risky and more rewarding than bonds. In addition, it is said that those targeting foreign countries are more subject to risks and returns than those targeting domestic investment are also affected by the exchange rate.[Annotation 2].

Additional investment trusts that can be purchased and canceled at any time respond to changes in the valuation of the assets held byBase price[Annotation 3]Is calculated. Operating profits can be received at the time of cancellation/sale if there is a gain on the increase in the base price, in addition to the distribution paid out at regular intervals.

If the management of trust assets raises a large amount of profits and raises the standard price, the unit price for purchasing in units of units increases and it becomes difficult to purchase.Therefore, the beneficiary right may be subdivided in order to lower the standard price.[Annotation 4].. 1999-2000IT bubbleBecame popular around that time. Therefore, a transfer system was needed. The beneficiary rights of all mutual fund are from January 2007, 1Securities custody transfer system[Annotation 5]Was migrated to (Paperless securities).No beneficiary certificates have been issued due to the complete computerization.

In the past, an account at a securities company or bank could only purchase funds affiliated with that company, but due to recent liberalization and competition, it has become possible to purchase funds from other companies as well.[2].. For exampleDeposit deposit boxHowever, it was neutral from a relatively early stage.

When the beneficiary purchases the fund, the selling financial institution gets a purchase fee (front load)[Annotation 6]..While the purchaser holds the fund, the financial institution that sold the investment trust can indirectly receive a portion of the trust fee from the trustee.

A certain rate (usually about 0.2 to 3% per year) of trust fees is deducted daily from the fund's net assets.Besides securities companiesbankIt is said that the reason why all companies are focusing on selling investment trusts is that the purchase fee and the indirect acquisition of trust fees are very high.[3].JapanMost of the investment trusts in Japan are around 3% of the purchase price,The United States of AmericaMutual funds do not collect any sales commissionsNo road fundIs common. This source is also usually the net assets of the fund.

Investment trust costs

Investment trusts have a mechanism to outsource their operations, so a prescribed fee (cost) is incurred at the time of purchase, during the operation period, and at the time of cancellation/purchase request. Until the spread of no-load, the tariff system has been debated for decades over fairness with customers[9].. The main fees are as follows.

Sales commission
The one collected by a sales company when an investor purchases an investment trust. Even for the same investment trust, the fee amount may differ depending on the purchase amount and the financial institutions that handle it. The front-loading system was once rampant due to exploitation. Also, some sales companies do not collect this, and such investment trustsNo road fundIt is called. In most cases, automatic reinvestment of distributions that are not “sold” can be purchased without fees. In addition, even for investment trusts that require sales fees, some sales companies offer discounts or free fees by cashing back fees at a later date (backload or exit road).
Trust fee
Collected by the investment management company and the sales company during the investment trust management period. The annual collection rate (about 0.1% to 2%) is set in advance, and is collected in the form of daily deduction from the total net assets of the trust property. Unlike sales fees, there are no differences due to the amount of ownership or the sales company. Basically, those who invest in stocks rather than bonds, those who invest overseas (especially in emerging countries) more than Japan, and those who actively change their investment destinations rather than passive types and index types that hold investment targets for a long time However, trust fees tend to be high. Since the standard price is displayed after deducting the trust fee, the beneficiaries rarely notice.
Trust property reservation amount
Expenses collected when selling or canceling investment trusts. There are many things in which the amount of retained trust assets does not apply. The amount of the trust property reservation is returned to the beneficiary who holds the remaining investment trust in the trust property, and is not a commission paid to the sales company or the management company. This is explained as a nuisance fee for other beneficiaries, because the expenses for selling the underlying assets such as stocks and receivables that are part of the trust property due to the cancellation will be paid from the trust property.[10].
Cancellation fee
Most mutual funds do not collect fees for cancellation. Fees may be charged for a small portion of investment trusts (such as bond investment trusts).


The distribution amount of an investment trust is a portion of the trust property that is returned to the beneficiary when the investment trust is closed. Since it is the return of trust property, it has a different nature from interest on fixed deposits and dividends on stocks, and when a distribution comes out, the base price decreases by that amount. The distribution of the portion where the base price exceeds the individual principal isOrdinary distributionIf it is treated as taxable and the base price is less than the individual principal,Special distributionIt will be treated as tax exempt as (refund of principal, part of partial refund of principal). Even if automatic reinvestment is selected, ordinary distributions are taxed and the amount after taxation is reinvested.

Generally, many Japanese individual investors are particular about distribution (principal guarantee), and the side that sells the investment trust emphasizes the amount of distribution, schedule and frequency, but especially “special distribution (principal repayment)” '' is nothing but the ``octopus dividend'' paid back from the investment assets that you contributed, and the investment assets are also the balance after the sales commission and trust fee when purchasing the investment trust were deducted, and already reduced from the contribution amount. I tend not to pay attention to that. Even if such distribution is reinvested, ordinary distribution will be taxed at the time of distribution.TMJIt is like re-depositing the cash withdrawn as it is, and the collection of overtime withdrawal fees is equivalent to taxing ordinary distributions, and the compound interest effect is reduced by that amount, so there is practically no loss. Will be done. Generally, if the purpose is not to secure stable living expenses through regular distribution, but to increase the amount of assets over the long term, rather pay attention to the rise in the standard price without distribution. It is said that the increase in distribution and standard price should be comprehensively evaluated according to the purpose.[11][12].

Investment Trust

Mutual fundsThe United KingdomIt is the origin of international financial instruments. 1868, overseas colonial investment trust (Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust) Was established. The company issued fixed income securities and invested the funds in overseas and colonial securities.

Development on both sides of the line

In France, four ancestors of investment trusts were created between 1925 and 1929. These fiveWorld DepressionSo all is gone. From that point forward, investment trusts became established in the United States as international capital. HoweverEuro currencyCreated a large international market in the 1960s. As a background, it is meaningful to know post-war Germany and France together with the United States.

It was in 1949 when the international community turned to the opposite course all at once. Germany'sCommerz BankEstablished a management company that manages investment trusts through a joint investment with the Bavarian Joint Bank (Allgemeine Deutsche Investment Gesellschaft mbH). In France, a state-owned asset management company was born (Société Nationale d'Investissement, cf. Maghrib). The source was French company shares owned by Germany and others.[14]

By the law of June 1952, 6, the tax disadvantage against the former French state management company disappeared, and private investment trust companies also grew from the same year (Société d'investissement à capital fixe, SICAF). 1956Deutsche BankEstablished a management company as a joint venture with 13 other syndicates (Deutsche Gesellshaft für Wertpapiersparen mbH). The following year, in 1957, the German government institutionalized an open-ended contract investment trust (investment company law). France reorganized SICAF into SICAV by the law of December 1957, 12 and at the same time established FCP (Fond commun de placement). Under the law, rules were established on September 1963, 9, and the following year, in 20, SICAV1964 companies made their business a star (Offshore financial centerComposition). In 1968 Germany, some insurance companies and pension fundsInstitutional investorA private placement investment trust was established to issue shares (special fund). The de facto FOF was the first in Germany. In 1979, the French FCP finally opened. France introduced the MMF without price maintenance regulation in the 1980s. By the law of December 1988, 12, SICAF and FCP were united and an EC passport was granted (Organisme de placement collectif en valeurs mobilières, OPCM). Shortly after reunification, in 1990 Germany amended the Investment Company Act. And in 1994 MMF was lifted. In 1998, we introduced FOF and index funds to expand the investment target of derivatives.[14]

Special fund investment regulations are loose. Bank deposits up to 73% of total assets. Up to 5% of shares/bonds of the same issue. There are no restrictions on foreign securities except for pensions. 5 SICAV operators in share rankingCredit AgricoleIs the top (13.9%),Society GeneralIs second (9.6%),Ques Des PagnesIs third (9.5%),BNP and ParibasWere fourth (8.7%) and eighth (5.1%), respectively.

History of investment trusts in Japan

Pacific War and disbandment of chaebol

1937 year 7 month,Fujimoto Building BrokerFormed the Fujimoto Securities Association. Fujimoto Securities bought a caretaker because it was difficult for its members to operate, but it was discontinued due to opposition from the industry and government authorities as a trust-like act. On June 1940, 6, the Ministry of Finance issued a generous order. "In the future, it is all right to be involved in investment trusts in the form of unit trusts within the scope of cooperation with trust companies, recruitment of trustors, and securities investment affairs of trust companies,"Nomura SecuritiesAsked for approval by the Ministry of Finance on November 1941, 11. Nomura Investment TrustPacific WarGained an unrealized gain from the rise in stock prices due to the outcome of the battle. September 1942, Fujimoto,Yamaichi, Koike,Kawashimaya,JointOf the Japanese investment trusts (founded in 5)Tokyo Trust Bank)Specified money trustAs a trustee of, the investment trust business was started all at once. It was successfully recruited every month until 1943. From the setting in April 1944, the income was tax-free up to the principal of 4 yen per unit, which was the subject of savings saved by the National Savings Union, so the recruitment amount increased dramatically. Since these closed funds also invested in securities of foreign companies such as the munitions industry, they were hit hard with the defeat.Reverse courseOnce the stock market recovered,Korean WarAll the money was redeemed before the outbreak.[23]

Nomura's investment trusts accounted for 47% of the total investment trusts set up during the war, almost double that of Yamaichi, who came in second place. Of the securities included, government bonds have a par value of 2 yen and a market price of about 100 yen. Stocks have unknown market prices, and there are foreign companies and restricted companies that cannot be disposed without permission.Closed organization・Bonds issued by corporate restructuring companies,Loss compensationThe redemption was postponed due to a contract with[24].

Nomura immediately after enforcement,Nikko, Yamaichi,Yamato4 companies registered[26].. Osakaya Securities (currentlyIwai Cosmo Securities) And Oi Securities (currentlyShinko Securities) Registered in July and September[26].. Although they were looking for a unit type, they adopted a new bearer type, institutionalized purchase and partial cancellation, released the asset composition from the contract, and abolished the pre-war loss compensation special agreement.[26].Ikeda-Robertson talksAt that time, the deflation policy was taken and the stock price dropped sharply, and the operating results were sluggish until 1955.[26].. The additional type that has already been set has an indefinite trust period from January 1956.[26].

Securities recession and international investment trusts

In 1958, 7 securities companies were licensed for investment trust business, and the number of consignment companies operated by securities companies became 14[27].. The following year, in 1959, four major securities companies established a new consignment company and responded to the conflict of interest problem of concurrent management.[27].. In the 30s, stock investment trusts became popular against the backdrop of a booming economy, and a cycle was seen in which increasing funds demanded stocks and raised stock prices. In January 1961, with Nikko SecuritiesKeiichiro NiwayamaBond bond investment trust was released to the public with the idea of[27].. When the bond issuance conditions were lowered in April, the fund lowered the ratio of newly issued bonds from 4% to 80% in order to secure a yield.[27].. In July, the official discount rate was raised and the number of cancellations of bond investment trusts increased[27].. The incorporated bond was taken over by the securities company[27].. In 1963 he was the then Minister of FinanceKakuei TanakaAlso supported public and corporate bond investment trusts. The remaining principal amount of stock investment trusts in the same year was 1955 trillion yen, 20 times higher than in 1.17[27].. The people of the times leave a parable that the medaka in the pond became a whale. Branch of a securities company is listed to complain to be "Farewell bank, Hello by securities" in placard[28].. Eventually, a bond that lost liquidity triggeredSecurities recessionHappened[27].

In August 1967, the investment trust law was amended to recognize the “deemed investment trust” that is the basis of family funds. A family fund is a mechanism in which a child investment trust is sold to consumers and the parent investment trust is bought with the money. If the FOF was a top-down investment trust pyramid, the family fund was, on the contrary, a bottom-up one. In 8, when Euroclear was established, both the unit type and additional type investment trusts recovered their principal amounts.[29]

1969February, with Nomura SecuritiesNM Rothschild & SonsMerrill LynchJointly funded the so-called Pacific Seaboard Fund. The net worth was $3200 million, with Japanese stocks and other Pacific Coast stocks accounting for $1800 million. March, called Tokyo ValorLuxembourgWas established as a Japanese equity investment trust (net assets of 2100 million dollars, all Japanese equity investment). In April, the interest rate tax was reduced from 4% to 18.75%. From this and the weakness of the New York stock market and poor outlook, from MayMutual fundHave been bought into the Japanese stock market. Keystone Custodian (Keystone Custodian Funds, Inc.) And Dreyfus Fund (Dreyfus Fund), andFidelity InvestmentsHas been attracting attention by incorporating Japanese stocks. In September, the Dreyfus fund (net assets of $9 billion) invested $24 million into Japanese stocks all at once. The next day, January 1,Federal ReserveStrengthened guidelines for Japanese equity investment.[30]

Pacific Fund investment advisors are at least Japan-French Investment Trusts (established in March 1964) and Nomura Securities (approved by the Ministry of Finance on January 3, 1969).

At that time, European investment trusts were the center of foreign investment. They made intensive investments in Japan's relatively limited good-quality and growth stocks and took full initiative in market price formation since the establishment of Euroclear. thusPrice earnings ratioThe concept has taken root in the Japanese market.[31]

Institutionalization through capital liberalization

Since September 1970,Sato administrationNet buying continued due to international investment trusts, which saw the Japanese stock price firm below. On April 4, a large-scale sale by overseas investors occurred due to the management crisis of IOS led by Bernard Kornfeld (so-called IOS shock). Global stock price plunge, Nikkei stock price fell 30%[32].. Japan banned foreign governments from acquiring short-term government securities and non-residents from unlisted public and corporate bond investment trusts (1971), making it even more difficult for foreigners to make a net increase in investment in Japan (1972 )[31].. But investment trusts are far from being canceledCapital liberalizationApproached. Measures on the Japanese side were abolished throughout 1973-4[31].

On May 1971, 5, Nomura Investment Trust Management set Japan's first international investment trust (international joint investment trust) for 4 billion yen.[33].. The investment advisors are Dreyfus and Morgan Grenfell (nowDeutsche Bank)Met[33].Oil shockIn November 1972, domestic sales of foreign investment trusts were liberalized[29].. The family fund gradually reduced the set amount from the following year 1973[29].. September 1973, 1Daiwa SecuritiesLaunched the Dreyfus Fund in Japan[33].. In January 1976, the family fund took improvement measures such as changing the indefinite trust period to a fixed term[29].. In 1977, it accounted for 57% of stock investment trusts[29].. The main axis of development of new products has shifted from unit type to additional type[29].

Released in 1980Medium-term government bond fundHowever, you can put it in and out after leaving it for a month[Annotation 16], It has become a popular product because of its product characteristics such as real interest rate exceeding bank deposits and compound interest for one month. Securities companiesDeposit similar productsThe investment trust was made popular by the development of. Incorporated securities tended to be the same as in the 1970s, and were the stocks and bonds of leading corporations whose direct transactions suppressed supply. Foreign capital took advantage of this kind of public-private fusion. 1985,Sumitomo BankGotthard Bank (acquired byGotthard-Bank)But,ItomanIssueForeign bondsBy doing the lead underwriter ofSilver certificate separationWas watered down[34]..

Jusen, REIT, and pension

It has become difficult for the soliciting and managing body and the incorporated securities to conduct research focusing only on Japan.

Bubble economyHas shown a significant increase in stock investment trusts,1989Has risen to 58 trillion yen (including public and corporate bond investment trusts). Since it was difficult to avoid foreign exchange losses in stock investment trusts, the standard price was sluggish and many investors suffered losses. Around 1991, when the bubble burst, public and corporate bond investment trusts began to increase. Some analysts and scholarsSubprime loanAs mentioned above, the difficulty of selecting an investment trust led to the need for an evaluation company. So in 1996,Kumi FujisawaJapan's first investment trust valuation company Ifis (in 1999Standard & Poor's(Sold to the company) was established. Let's ask for a moment, what are the securities that are included in public and corporate bond investment trusts, which have been increasing for a while, and why some Japanese were interested in subprime loans. It failed in June 1996 to give important suggestions to this.Housing finance companyIs.

In 1997, the sale of investment trusts was lifted in the form of affiliated securities companies and investment trust management companies renting a part of a bank's space and acting as a sales window (store lending system) (Financial bang[Annotation 17].. Since December 1998, the sale of investment trusts at bank counters has been lifted.

Mutual funds and retirees

At present, people over the age of 60 who mainly manage deposits and savings have large financial assets.[35].. In order to take in such funds, we have developed products that have a monthly distribution and that are distributed in the months other than the month in which the pension is received, while paying attention to the actual conditions of living, that is, the main income of the pension, and paying attention to safety by diversifying investment. Products are ranked high in the net assets balance of mutual funds[Annotation 19].

However, independent FP (Financial plannerA lot of)WorkerAt retirementSeverance payBefore starting investment such as the purchase of mutual funds for the first time on the basis of the doing[36][37].. In this respect, the following reasons are given.

  • I'm feeling uplifted with a lot of money I've never had before, like retirement allowances, so it's possible that it's hard to make a calm decision
  • Although investment trusts are highly secure, investment always involves risks, and a certain amount of experience is required to understand the mechanism, market trends, investment technology, etc.
  • Banks with accounts that have been transferred to salaries and have received retirement allowances are well aware of the financial status of retirees (such as income and financial assets up to that point). Purchasing mutual funds as they are told may be a solicitation that prioritizes the interests of banks over the interests of retirees[38]

  7. ^ It takes the time and effort necessary for swiftly obtaining information related to investment and its analysis and response actions.
  8. ^ As a general rule, the number of shares to be traded is determined for individual stocks. For example, even if the stock price is 310 yen, if 1,000 shares are trading units, you can invest only 31 yen.[4]However, with open type investment trusts, you can buy (sell) a fractional number of units, for example, if the standard price is 1,200 yen, it will be 1 units at 8.333 yen, and if the standard price rises to 1,250 yen, it will also be 1 units at 8 units. For 1,500 yen, you can flexibly purchase as much as 1 units for 6.667 yen, and it is suitable for long-term funded savings and investment that regularly contributes a relatively small fixed amount.[5],Dollar cost averagingIt is also compatible with the risk reduction. In addition, with small funds of individuals,Unit stockIf you buy or sell a few things frequently, the trading fee burden on securities companies will not be ridiculous, but depending on the investment trust, you can collect huge amounts of funds from hundreds of thousands of investors and invest in large units, The cost is relatively low.
  9. ^ In order to purchase shares of a foreign company that is not listed in Japan, in principle, you must have an account with a securities company in the country in which the company is listed. You can leave all the trouble and qualifications (resident/non-resident etc.), money transfer, tax processing etc. for opening the account to professionals. Not only does it reduce the burden of study, funding, expenses, and risks, but it also becomes a diversified investment.
  10. ^ Unlike individual stocks that sell one minute after they are bought, even open mutual funds cannot be traded until the base price for the day, which is calculated daily after the market closes, is determined. In addition, many open-end funds have a minimum holding period (for example, 1 days), and if you sell for a shorter period, you will be fined. This means that if short-term purchases and sales are repeated, cash for payment must be secured at all times, which defeats the original purpose of collecting and investing funds from many investors. This is to prevent the investment funds from being depleted unnecessarily because the costs of the procedure are paid from the investment funds.
  11. ^ It is clear that there is no "free lunch" in the world, financial institutions sell investment trusts because sales fees are charged, and operating companies and fund managers operate and manage investment trusts because trust fees are charged. Therefore, the source of these costs is the investment funds contributed by investors. When purchasing an investment trust, an investor, like all product purchases, must judge the effect and cost/price.
  12. ^ Usually, it is the general public investors, pension unions, and other groups that do not invest primarily in purchasing mutual funds (based on the age and investment style of investors, multiple recommended mutual funds rather than individual stocks are recommended). “Fund of Funds” that invests in a combination ofSet mealType investment trusts" also exist[6]), contrary to the expectation that "it will be highly profitable because it is trusted by a professional fund manager", for example, to analyze various market conditions.indexHowever, there are rarely high-earning mutual funds that outperform indexes, and ratherMany mutual funds can only realize profits that do not reach the index[7].. This is from the pastSecurities and Exchange CommissionArgues that the investment trust industry should be compared to the performance of individual investors.
  13. ^ Risk diversification means investing by diversifying in various directions, and even if one of the investees makes a large profit, if the other investee does not follow it, the big profit will fade as a whole. Is clear, and on the contrary, it is natural that the purpose of risk dispersion is to diminish the large loss.
  14. ^ In general, when a beginner invests in investment, it is recommended to buy a long-term investment, for example, a good stock and hold it for several years to ten years. But professional investors (fund managers) working in mutual funds cannot do this. In order to avoid potential or explicit criticisms of “only accepting trust fees and doing nothing”, the fund managerDay tradinglikeSpeculationIt is said that there is a tendency to execute targeted trading.Expenses related to the buying and selling of investment targets are contributed from the operating funds collected from investors., As a result, lower the standard price of the mutual fund. Some investment trusts are proactively active (mostly short-term trading)Active typeThere is something that advocates "" that expresses passive operation (long-term holding tendency), and it seems that "active type" can expect higher profits at first glance, but the fact is that there are investment destinations in the same field Compared to investment trusts, there are quite a few cases where passive types result in higher profits (active types tend to have higher trust fees).[8].

Depending on the mode of deposit, there are checking account, ordinary deposit, fixed deposit, and the like. In essence, depositors lend money to financial institutions. Liquid deposits that can be paid out at any time if requested by depositors (demand deposits) and time deposits that do not respond until the expiration of the specified deposit period.

Japanese deposit system

Distinction between deposit and savings

In Japan, the terms “deposit” and “savings” are used differently according to the financial institutions they handle, but they have the same nature. Originally, it was said that what was intended for savings was called savings, and what was intended for settlement was called deposits, and deposits have a broader meaning, but are now treated as synonymous.

Handling deposits isbank,Credit union,Credit union,Labor unionDo a credit businessAgricultural cooperativeSuch asFinancial institutions handling deposits and savingsIs. other than this,Bank of JapanAlso accepts deposits.
Of financial institutions that handle deposits and savingsAgricultural cooperative・Shinnoren (JA Bank) AndFishery cooperative・Shinsenren (JF Marine BankIn), it is called savings rather than savings.2007May 10ToJapan PostWas spun off and privatizedJapan Post Bank ThePostal savingsIn light of the history of inheriting some of the business, although it is a deposit by law, it is still called a savings for business purposes.

Account type

General account
In general,One passbookYou can deposit time deposits together with ordinary deposits, and when the balance of ordinary deposits becomes insufficient due to a request for refund or automatic transfer, those time deposits are used as collateral.Lending is done automaticallyPayment received (OverdraftThat). Overdraft interest is accrued during each overdraft use period in addition to the interest rate on each deposit as collateral. Settlement of interest on loans is done twice a year (often in February and August).
For each financial institution,
  • Case of 1 transaction at 1 branch
  • A financial institution where only one of the branches can use the general account in the transactions of all branches, and only one book is available for one financial institution
  • As a booklet, you can trade as many books as you like with one branch, but a financial institution that allows only one transaction for time deposits and overdrafts.
For example, the handling differs depending on the individual financial institution. When issuing a general account passbook with integrated savings and deposits, you may be able to trade multiple booklets that are all in one (actually, the total account is treated as one book, and the remaining booklet is simply It will be used only in the state that a savings book and savings deposit are included in a bundle). Exceptionally, in the case of store integration, if there is originally a general account transaction at the integration destination and there is a general account transaction even at the abolished store, there are cases where two comprehensive accounts can be used (ordinary deposit and time deposit In some cases, you may be requested not to purge and treat as a general account.)
Repayment of the loan is automatically made by depositing the savings account.
Some financial institutions set up automatic financing,MinorIn some cases, it may not be permitted to open a general account, and in that case, the account will be opened using a savings account passbook.
Incidentally,Japan Post Bank"General account (passbook)" refers to ordinary savings and ordinary savings savings with a transfer function, so the concept is different from what is generally done by other financial institutions, so be careful when using it properly. necessary.In addition, even if you use only regular savings, the passbook used as regular savings isGeneral account passbookIt is called.However, like a general financial institution,Normal savingsFixed amount savingsIt should also be noted that it is necessary to distinguish such as.

Deposit type

Ordinary deposit

It is common in Japan, but it is rare in the world that interest rates are attached as demand payment accounts, and in the US,Savings loan associationThe NOW account of is close to this.

For the daily final balanceinterestIt will be paid every six months (Sumishin SBI Net BankThere is also a monthly interest rate, etc.), liquidity that can be freely deposited and refunded, and various settlements such as automatic transfer and receipt are handled, resulting in a lower interest rate than regular deposits.
In addition, in addition to ordinary savings accounts at some banks,Savings account with combined benefitsIs being handled. There are certain conditions for using the privilege.
Before the warSavings bankIs a product ofOrdinary bankHad a "special checking account" as a similar product. During the war, most savings banks were merged into ordinary banks, and as a result, ordinary banks also operated as savings banks.
Savings deposit
Ordinary deposit with special interest-free contract.. Even if the financial institution you deposit fails,Full protectionTo be done. Other product characteristics are similar to ordinary savings accounts.
Since April 2005, it has also been applied to the savings accounts of private financial institutions.PayoffHas been lifted (when a financial institution goes bankrupt, the deposit insurance is limited to the principal of 1,000 million yen and its interest per depositor), but in addition, payment services (acceptance of transfer money, automatic transfer, etc.) ), refundable at any time, and interest-free depositsSettlement depositThe Deposit Insurance Act stipulates that the full amount of this will be protected permanently. The ordinary deposits for settlement have started to be handled as ordinary deposits satisfying these conditions.
Ordinary deposits in general accounts can also be settled as ordinary deposits for settlement, but collateral fixed-term deposits in such comprehensive accounts do not fall under “deposits for settlement” and are not subject to full-scale protection.
Current account (current account,British: kiểm tra tài khoản
Generally, depositors (consumer,business person,Corporation)ButBill,checkSettle payment forThis is an account forInterest-freeIt is stipulated. In addition, there are financial institutions that set an opening fee (and vice versa). In principle, requests for refunds shall be made by check or bill.
According to the Deposit Insurance ActSettlement depositAnd even if the deposited financial institution goes bankrupt, it will be fully protected.
Opening an account involves a current account contract, and it is necessary to go through an examination by the financial institution. This is because bills and checks are securities with an economic value similar to cash, and the issuer is required to have financial credibility that can be responsible for the settlement.
Generally, if the current account is used by a large good company for business, the financial institution can open the current account by examining the transaction status. On the other hand, opening an individual is almost impossible in Japan in recent years, with the exception of exceptions such as the Maru-exclusive account, which will be described later. This is because the issuance of checks is not only financially credible, but it is not accepted unless there is a special reason because the financial institution requires a lot of administrative work. As a means of fund settlementCredit cardThis is due to the fact that there are sufficient payment methods that do not require checks and bills, such as the use of credit cards, direct debits, direct debits, and automatic withdrawals.
If there is a payment request that exceeds the balance of the deposit account, the financial institution can make a contract to loan and pay the shortfall within the contracted maximum amount (Overdraft). In addition, overdraft interest will be accrued until the amount borrowed reaches zero. The depositor makes a guarantee contract in advance or inserts another deposit or bond as collateral for the loan.
In addition, consumersCard loanA dedicated account for repayment of installments and installments (also called a Maru-exclusive account) may also be opened as a checking account, which is an account for settlement.
In some cases, financial institutions do not issue passbooks or cash cards. In that case, the deposit book (the form used when depositing at the window of the account store) or the current account deposit book/depositing passbook (the passbook corresponding to the window of stores other than the account store or the deposit at the ATM, There is also a case of issuing a record of withdrawal or a record of the case of depositing by another method such as transfer).

Only individuals can open an account. It can be designated as a transfer account, but for receiving direct debit, salary, pension, dividend, etc.Cannot be specified.. Other product characteristics are almost the same as those of ordinary deposits. In addition to the above, some financial institutions have established provisions such as applying lower interest rates than ordinary deposits on lower days and setting a limit on the number of free refunds per month.
1992There were two types of standard amount, 20 yen type and 40 yen type, at the start of simultaneous release, but now that they have become diversified and concentrated due to the progress of financial liberalization, it is roughly10 million yen (The capital written in here and History is incorrect.

Time deposit
A deposit that sets a maturity date or a deferral period and deposits a certain amount until the maturity date or during the deferral period without refund. It is a deposit product that is the basis of savings and medium-term operations, as opposed to ordinary deposits, which is the basis of settlement and cash management on hand. In response to lending and operation by financial institutions as funds that have little liquidity within the period, interest rates higher than ordinary deposits are attached depending on the period.PrewarSavings banks inDeferred savingsWas called.

Accumulated deposits and accumulated time deposits
Generally, a contract to deposit (automatic transfer) a fixed deposit every month (or for a fixed period) on a fixed day. There are the following methods, and each financial institution has a different name.
  • A method in which a target date is set and a fixed deposit with the maturity date (with all maturity dates) is created each time a deposit is made.
  • A method of establishing a consolidation date, creating a time deposit with the maturity date on each deposit, and consolidating into a long-term, large time deposit with a higher interest rate on the consolidation date.
  • A method of creating fixed-term deposits with specified dates each time a deposit is made by automatic transfer.
The products are mainly for consumers, but there are also financial institutions that deal with businesses and corporations.
Term deposit
A contract in which a customer pays monthly contributions for a fixed period of 6 months to 5 years, and benefits are paid on the maturity date, plus benefit compensation (interest).
The following points are different in system from funded deposits and funded time deposits, where each deposit is an independent time deposit.
  • At the time of contract, the monthly payment amount, the benefit amount at maturity, and the payment period are set. For setting, you can use either the method of calculating benefits from the monthly desired amount of benefits, or the method of calculating monthly benefits from desired benefits at maturity. There is also handling such as increasing the amount.
  • The fixed yield is the same from the first time to the last call. The interest (advanced discount) when the contribution is made ahead of the due date is settled on the maturity date, and the maturity date is deferred if the contribution is delayed on the due date.
  • It is a product that is premised on visit collection, and yields are lower than time deposits. In addition, over-the-counter payment and transfer payment can also be used.
  • Each time a contract is issued, one certificate is issued with the contract details clearly stated.

Negotiable deposit
A time deposit that can be transferred to another person.
Notification deposit
Deposits that are suitable for deposits of approximately one week to less than one month. Usually, a grace period of 1 days is set, and after that, 1 days before the desired date, a notice will be given and refund will be given. Corresponding to the operation in the interbank short-term money market, etc., the interest rate is generally intermediate between that of ordinary deposits and one-month time deposits. General notification deposits are often used by corporations due to the system and interest rate standards.
Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation(OldSakura Bank) "Can" is a notification deposit for individuals, and it was a product that can be opened, deposited, and canceled by ATM and telephone banking / internet banking (SMBC Direct). Stopped opening.
Tax reserve
A deposit that deposits funds for tax payments. Tax interest is not taxed, as we recommend systematic savings of tax payments and tax payments from direct deposits. You can deposit at any time. Depending on the financial institutionAutomatic teller machine (ATM)You can also deposit at. However, refunds are limited to the time of tax payment (some financial institutions may only be able to withdraw tax payment funds at the stores that opened the tax reserve account).
Some financial institutions do not handle tax reserve deposits.
MunicipalitiesSo, for example,National Health InsuranceInsurance premiumTax treatmentThere are cases where payment by direct debit with tax reserve deposits is possible and cases where payment is not possible (payment at the financial institution window will be described later).

Security of deposits (prevention of fraud)

PassbooksealBy checking, or in the case of a cash cardPINThe authenticity of the depositor is confirmed by collation, but the forgery is made by electronically copying the seal imprint, stealing the secret code, and the forgery of the magnetic encoding of the cash card (Skimming) Has caused damage and various measures have been taken.

Fraudulent refundRegarding the liability of the bank for2005May 2, The Tokyo District Court ruled against the two actions.1998For the victims who had been illegally withdrawn by the bank, they were told to the bank side that the imprints were the same.LiabilityThere was no2002For the victims who had been illegally withdrawn, the bank was liable for liability because "there were many illegal refund cases at that time, there were typos on the slip name, and the refund amount was also high" It was For the cases that occurred up to 2000, exemption was granted as long as the bank did not overlook, but after that, in view of the improvement of criminal technology, in the case of suspicious cases, the responsibility for taking identity verification other than seal verification will be added. I have a judgment.

Currently, the following measures are essential to protect deposits from unauthorized refunds.

  • Passbook and seal of notificationAvoid storing in the same place.
  • Currently in passbookIf there is a secondary seal stamp, remove it(If you need to take the procedure at the counter to remove the supplementary seal stamp, such as Japan Post Bank, do not remove it yourself.)

Tightening at the start of trading and after trading

In recent years,Wire fraudFor example, there are many cases of opening bank accounts for criminal purposes and misuse, and due to this, the standards for opening new accounts are becoming stricter.
