It was a month ago that LeapRate has reported that Kabu.com, a retail FX subsidiary of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc (TYO:8306), got a business improvement order from Japan’s Financial Services Agency.
The Japanese regulator then reprimanded the company for problems with risk management systems and procedures, giving it a month to take the necessary steps to tackle the problems identified.
As the deadline passed, Kabu.com has published a report concerning the measures implemented in response to the sanctions.
Six senior managers of the companies are accepting pay cuts, ranging from 10% to 30% of their salaries for a period of one month to three months. Kabu.com’s president and CEO will see his pay reduced by 30% for a period of three months, whereas the chairman of the corporate board will see his pay cut by 25% for a month.
The FX broker also established extra controls and even new divisions to be responsible for risk management, business management and development, as well as human resources management.
