Who We Are
As a flagship company of the MUFG group, MUFG Bank is committed to leading the future. We continue to evolve toward our goal of being the world's most trusted financial group.
We have the largest domestic and global customer base of any Japanese bank, consisting of a network in Japan and more than 40 other countries. We apply our values of integrity and responsibility by contributing to the improvement of the economic and social infrastructure wherever we do business. The extensive network that this represents is itself a valuable component of our financial role as part of the global social infrastructure.
Global Network (As of March 31, 2014)
As a world-class comprehensive financial service provider, we leverage the expertise of each MUFG group company to provide a wide array of financial solutions, including banking, trust banking, securities, credit cards, and leasing.
In the area of corporate business, our solutions for capital and business strategies have fulfilled varied customer needs, such as stock listing, mergers and acquisitions, and the development of business in overseas markets. In retail banking, we have responded to broad customer needs amid the shift in customer focus from savings to investments.
Significant mergers lie behind today's bank. In 2004, the Mitsubishi Tokyo Financial Group and UFJ Holdings joined forces to form the world's largest comprehensive financial group, the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG), boasting JPY 190 trillion total assets. In 2006, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd. (BTMU) was established, originating from Mitsubishi Bank, the Bank of Tokyo, Sanwa Bank, and Tokai Bank.
The original four banks that merged to form BTMU provided unique services from the earliest days of the Japanese banking industry. The strengths of these original companies support our goal to evolve into a truly valuable company worldwide. View an illustrated history of our company through this link:
In 2018, our bank name was changed to MUFG Bank, Ltd. to raise further brand awareness by using the same name as major operating companies and to provide better service to our clients as one group.
