Japan Post Holdings

Japan

Japan’s national postal service, Japan Post Holdings, was privatized in 2007, and has struggled in the internet age as citizens send fewer letters but buy more parcels. The company has sought to grow through partnerships and mergers—with highly mixed results. Japan’s negative interest rate policy has also weighed down the conglomerate’s banking segment, Japan Post Bank, pushing the firm deeper into investments in real estate.
