Recognizing opportunity in the financial crisis of the early 1990s, Mitsubishi Bank and the Bank of Tokyo merged in 1996 to form the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi (BTM). The combination of Mitsubishi's extensive network of domestic branches and the Bank of Tokyo's overseas strength created Japan's largest bank and provided some much-needed stability to the nation's financial system.
