Retailer Rakuten Beats Japanese Lenders at Digital Bank Game

Taiga Uranaka 4/23/2021

(Bloomberg) -- Rakuten Group Inc. is emerging as the first real digital contender to Japan’s traditional lenders, using its Amazon.com like e-commerce dominance to steer users to its online bank.

New digital bank accounts at the internet conglomerate that’s better known for its online shopping services expanded by 20% last year and recently topped 10 million, the most among the country’s online lenders. Deposits grew by about 50% over the same period to more than 5 trillion yen ($46 billion), putting it on par with Japan’s mid-sized regional banks.

Rakuten allows its more than 100 million members to collect loyalty points by using a swath of services including its bank, which can then be spent like money through its array of businesses from its travel agency to its movie and TV show app.

“Many of our customers are users of other Rakuten services,” Kosuke Takeuchi, part of the strategic planning team at Rakuten Bank, said in a recent interview. Last year’s growth in new accounts has continued into this year, fueled by clients of Rakuten’s brokerage service, he added.

After a slow start, Japanese consumers are beginning to embrace online transactions that saw a surge in demand in many countries during the pandemic.

The shift in third-party cookie-tracking limitations and emphasis on privacy producing big advantages for Rakuten Advertising

Rakuten Advertising Looks Past Apple Privacy Changes To Thriving Business
By Laurie Sullivan April 26, 2021

Will more advertising dollars be pushed into affiliate marketing as Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook and others put limitations on third-party cookie tracking?

Anthony Capano, managing director of Rakuten Advertising North America, thinks so. He runs the programmatic display, search, affiliate, businesses for the U.S, as well as media services.

Rakuten has more than 70 services and businesses worldwide, such as Rakuten Advertising, Rakuten Viki, Rakuten TV and Rakuten Viber, among others. Let’s not forget Rakuten Rewards.

The parent company, Rakuten Group, serves nearly 1.4 billion members, which makes the ecosystem of first-party data enormous.

“We take privacy very seriously,” he said. “We implemented our technology to make sure we’ve protected the brands we work with, along with our company, and consumers. The data is now the cleanest and most consented that we’ve had.”

The company may be best known in the U.S. for its affiliate marketing channel, but that’s about to change, as people become more familiar with the company.

Some might not know, for example, that Rakuten has a video-on-demand service, called Rakuten Viki, but it has a global audience of TV shows, movies and original content that is translated into more than 150 languages by a community of fans. It has 38 million registered users.

The shift in third-party cookie-tracking limitations and emphasis on privacy will change Rakuten Advertising’s strategy, but the company has been focused on these themes for some time based on its location.

The open RAN market is still in its early days. We estimate that there are currently 35 active open RAN deployments across the globe,1 many of which involve MNOs testing open RAN in greenfield, rural, and emerging markets. Although deployments are starting slowly, they could easily double in 2021. While it may take anywhere from three to five years for the technology to fully mature, open RAN adoption should accelerate rapidly thanks to the logic of its network design and its strategic alignment with carrier needs. Economic and competitive forces are also converging to drive the market forward. If this trend continues, the open RAN market has the potential to grow substantially, with some estimating double-digit growth rates2 that will push open RAN to approach 10% of the total RAN market by 20253 from less than 1% today.4 Moreover, if governments force MNOs to replace installed 5G RAN equipment from restricted vendors, the growth rate may be even higher.

55102 Postings, 6011 Tage Libuda5G + Open RAN changing the economics of wireless

07.05.21 13:20
How 5G and Open RAN are changing the economics of wireless

The parts of cellular networks closest to the user were expensive and proprietary, but with 5G, they are opening up.

When the U.S. military drops into a hot zone, one of the first orders of business is to set up a communications network. These networks look and work a lot like a traditional wireless network, including a powerful antenna, switching hardware, and other infrastructure, all designed to be used privately and securely. Until recently, once any intelligence was captured, it would have to be beamed back to the U.S. for processing, then returned to the field with analysis attached. And that's an awfully slow process. By the time all that information was shipped halfway around the world—twice—it may have become outdated and the potential target may have moved on.

A new set of policies and standards collectively known as Open RAN is now changing all of that. Rather than having to send data elsewhere for processing, the U.S. Department of Defense—and anyone, really—can swap out formerly proprietary hardware that was part of the telco network with their own equipment. The upshot is that the DoD can now install its own servers and process data on the fly and at the edge, wherever its forces happen to be, reducing latency, increasing reliability, and—the kicker—doing all of this for a lot less money.

The RAN is the edge of the telecom network, consisting of the cell tower you see on the side of the highway as well as the computing devices on it and connected directly to it. All device access to the network, both cell phones and the Internet of Things, goes through the RAN.

RAN hardware has been extremely expensive and available only from a small number of vendors. Because 5G networks use radio frequencies that require a large increase in the number of cells and therefore the number of RANs, a new set of policies and standards collectively known as Open RAN has emerged to standardize the design. The result will be lower costs and a burst of innovation.

Our FinTech businesses have maintained stable revenue and profit growth

Our FinTech segment consists of a diverse portfolio of financial services with stable revenue and profit growth. Revenue for our FinTech segment grew from ¥296,066 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 to ¥576,195 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, representing a CAGR of 18.1%, and segment profit increased from ¥65,587 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 to ¥81,291 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. Rakuten Card was the most popular credit card in Japan with GTV of ¥11.6 trillion for the year ended December 31, 2020 (with a year-over-year growth rate in shopping GTV for the year ended December 31, 2020 that was 28% higher than the credit card industry’s average rate according to METI). Over the years ended December 31, 2016 to December 31, 2020, we have successfully controlled credit costs for Rakuten Card, consistently maintaining a ratio of expenses related to doubtful accounts of roughly 2%, and the complementary nature of our FinTech businesses has allowed Rakuten Card assets held through Rakuten Bank to serve as funding sources through securitization, further contributing to increased profitability for the Rakuten group. As of January 2021, Rakuten Bank became the first online-only bank in Japan to reach 10 million accounts. This was an increase from approximately 5.35 million accounts as of March 31, 2016 and represents an increasingly accelerated pace of user acquisition. Rakuten Securities had the highest number of new account openings among Japan’s online-only banks for three years in a row based on public disclosure materials, with approximately 600,000, 700,000 and 1,300,000 new account openings for the 2018, 2019 and 2020 calendar years, respectively (compared to approximately 400,000, 400,000 and 800,000 new account openings for SBI Securities Co., Ltd. for the 2018, 2019 and 2020 calendar years, respectively).

With a leading position in Japan’s e-commerce market, Rakuten Ichiba is well-positioned to capture further growth

The total GMS of our domestic e-commerce businesses was ¥4.5 trillion for the year ended December 31, 2020. Japan’s e-commerce industry grew at a 12.1% CAGR from the year ended December 31, 2015 to the year ended December 31, 2020, according to FUJI KEIZAI CO., LTD., and sales from Rakuten Ichiba constitute a significant portion of our GMS. During the ongoing COVID-19pandemic, interest in e-commerce in Japan has increased due to changes in consumer behavior resulting from “stay-at-home” policies and health concerns, leading to significantly accelerated growth, with total GMS for our domestic e-commerce businesses growing 19.9% in the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to the previous year and surpassing ¥4 trillion for the first time. However, Japan’s e-commerce penetration rate of 6.8% is still relatively low compared to the United States (11.0%) and China (36.6%) (according to a report issued by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, or METI, in 2019), and we believe Japan’s e-commerce industry will continue to grow.

Und wenn man das mit den nachstehenden ersten Adressen über die Bühne bringen will, geht das für uns Investoren glücklicherweise nicht anders:

Goldman Sachs International
Morgan Stanley
Daiwa Capital Markets Europe
BofA Securities
Mizuho Securities

Und nur so erfährt man in den Angaben unter 6694, was man in den normalen Geschäftsberichten nicht erfährt, dass im Bereich Internet Services 246,136 Millionen Yen (ca. 2,26 Milliarden Dollar) im Bereich "Others" anfallen, wobei hier Advertising den größten Anteil haben dürfte und trotz dieser Info immer noch viel geraten werden muss.

Meines Erachtens ist der Grund für diese Geheimniskrämerei, dass man mit Kapitalerhöhungen nichts am Hut hatte und den bestimmenden Großaktionären um den CEO Mikitani die Kursentwicklung egal war - dass es dann doch zu einer kam, war m.E. nicht langfristig geplant.

Rakuten Mobile achieved 1.77 Gbps throughput in a recent test on its millimeter wave network in Japan.

Altiostar touted performance and automation capabilities of the virtualized cloud-native 5G network, which launched in September using the vendor’s Open vRAN software. Rakuten has an equity stake in Altiostar.

“This is a significant milestone for the Rakuten Mobile and Altiostar partnership towards commercial realization of a high performing, cloud-native 5G RAN architecture,” said Ashraf Dahod, CEO of Altiostar, in a statement. “The Altiostar container-based solution allows Rakuten Mobile to quickly provision new sites and turn up service for a customer in record time."

The announcement was light on details about the test, which took place in December, but noted the download speed was a gigabit higher than average download speeds in Japan based on Q3 speed tests from Ookla. Those results showed the fastest 10% of users in Japan saw average download speeds of 719.42 Mbps.

That’s a big jump from 4G LTE as Opensignal in September showed Rakuten Mobile’s user speeds were much slower than the average of Japan’s three other wireless carriers – at just 21.6 Mbps compared to 46.9 Mbps. A November report from Tutela showed users were getting a better experience when connected to Rakuten’s own 4G network, but speeds dragged as users roamed on other carrier’s networks more than 45% of the time because of limited coverage.

More recently in February, Opensignal reported large increases in the share of connections to Rakuten’s own network as the operator continued to build out – and still reported better on-net speeds versus when users roam.

170% increase by Viber in all group-related activities, including chats, calls, and Communities

A Year of the “New Normal” – How People Stayed Connected

By Lior Hada MARCH 24, 202

The shift to the virtual space was quick – and soon everyone was “meeting-up” via video. Viber felt this as well, with a 170% increase in all group-related activities, including chats, calls, and Communities.
Looking back at the past year, Viber CEO, Djamel Agaoua reflected on how Viber had to adjust as well. “We work tirelessly to make communication better, especially during these challenging times, while always keeping your privacy a top priority. We thank you for choosing Viber as your messaging app and are grateful for your continued trust in us.”

Communities were opened all over the world, including in the Philippines, Greece, and Sri Lanka – where they saw huge waves of people joining. Today, they stand at 2.2M, 740K, and 450K members respectively.

As people flocked to Viber, we quickly doubled the number of participants in group video calls from 5 to 10. Soon, 10 became 20, allowing even extended families and large groups of friends to see each other in one call.

To start a video call in any group chat, tap the video icon and select up to 19 participants.

Quick to their feet, millions of teachers and instructors around the world, started running classes via video calls and turning Viber group chats into their main form of communication with their students.
Teaching via a group video call on Viber is easy. There is no time-limit and video calls are completely free. This means your yoga class can be as relaxing as it needs to be, without a session expiry message waiting to interfere.

Having adjusted to the “new normal”, teachers and instructors have new routines centered around virtual classrooms and group chats, to great successes – showing the importance of innovation and resourcefulness.

We want to thank the hundreds of millions of people around the world who put their trust in Viber, to keep them connected to their loved ones during these challenging times.
