  Mitsubishi's well capitalized balance sheet makes it less risky than peers.

Mitsubishi holds an balance sheet with a risk-adjusted weight of 11.18%, well above the required 8.00%. The well-capitalization gives MUFG a cushion for continued declining financial assets, while American and European competitors, such as Citi Financial, AIG, and UBS are forced to sell assets in order to maintain required capital ratios.

  Growth in Asian markets will support MTU's earnings.

Mitsubishi aims to expand its Asian operations outside of Japan. Already advising companies on expansion into the region and its long history of banking in Japan give Mitsubishi a competitive advantage over non-Asian banks that are trying to gain market share. Rapid GDP growth in countries like China and India translates to more opportunities to make money.
