TOKYO -- Japanese banks are pursuing a dangerous strategy of loading up on foreign assets with money borrowed from overseas, a global banking watchdog has warned.
Their net holdings of dollar assets have doubled to about $1 trillion since before the Lehman shock in 2008, according to data released this week by the Bank for International Settlements.
The amount is the difference between their holdings of dollar assets, worth about $3.5 trillion, and their dollar liabilities, around $2.5 trillion.
Their net holdings could be even bigger if assets denominated in other currencies, such as the euro, are included.

Deutsche Bank’s Clients Take Steps to Cut Exposure 


Some Deutsche Bank AG clients, among them several big and influential hedge funds, have moved to pull billions of dollars from the bank amid concerns about its stability and their exposure, said people close to clients and the bank.

exposure
  • An insurance company's potential to provide coverage under an insurance policy
  • Market exposure, a measure of the proportion of money invested in the same industry sector


Market exposure (or exposure) is a financial term which measures the proportion of money invested in the same industry sector. For example, a stock portfolio with a total worth of $500,000, with $100,000 in semiconductor industry stocks, would have a 20% exposure in "chip" stocks.
