Board of Directors and Three Statutory Committees

The Board of Directors is composed of a variety of directors who possess a wealth of knowledge and experience together with deep insight. As determined in the Articles of Incorporation, the appropriate number of members of the Board of Directors is set to be less than twenty directors. In principle, one-third or more of the members shall consist of independent directors.

The Board has three statutory committees—the Nomination Committee, the Audit Committee, and the Compensation Committee. Outside Directors comprise a majority of the membership of these committees, which work together with the Board to oversee the Bank’s operations.

Nomination Committee

The Nomination Committee determines the criteria for selecting and removing directors. The committee also determines the contents of proposals for submission to general meetings of shareholders concerning the election and dismissal of directors.

Audit Committee

The Audit Committee monitors the execution of duties by executive officers and directors, prepares audit reports, determines the contents of proposals for submission to general meetings of shareholders concerning the election, dismissal and refusal to
re-elect independent auditors.

Compensation Committee

The Compensation Committee formulates compensation policies for directors and executive officers and determines detailed compensation for each individual.

Executive Officers

The Executive Officers, who are selected by the Board of Directors, are responsible for conducting business operations.
The President and Representative Executive Officer makes full use of the authority and responsibility delegated to him by the Board of Directors in the conduct of business operations.
JAPAN POST BANK has introduced a performance-linked stock compensation system utilizing a trust as part of its compensation for its Executive Officers. The objectives of the system are to further enhance the awareness of the Executive Officers of the Bank regarding the importance of contributing to sustainable growth and enhancing the Bank’s corporate value over the medium and long terms, by clarifying the link between the Executive Officers’ compensation and the share value of the Bank. Accordingly, the compensation of the Executive Officers of the Bank shall consist of a “base compensation” component as fixed compensation, and a “performance-linked stock compensation” component as variable compensation.

Executive Committee, Internal Control Committee,and Special Committees

The Executive Committee holds discussions on important business execution matters, and the Internal Control Committee holds discussions on legal, regulatory, and other compliance-related issues as well as other important internal control matters.
