Deep Historical Roots
MUFG has deep historical roots in Japan and the Americas. The origins of our business include a preferred financial manager for the Tokugawa shogunate, an entrepreneurial former samurai in the earliest days of the Meiji Restoration, the California Gold Rush, and coffee plantations in South America.
We are proud of our roots and employ the same entrepreneurial spirit to provide our clients with progressive corporate and trade-related credit facilities, money market, foreign exchange, remittances, treasury management, and deposit services.
MUFG is one of Japan’s premier financial groups, with a global network spanning almost 50 countries. It is one of the largest foreign banks operating in North America, the company’s primary overseas market, and has had a presence in Latin America for almost 100 years.
Founded in 1864, Union Bank is one of the oldest financial institutions in the American West and was instrumental to the growth of California. Its retail operations include more than 350 branches in California, Oregon, and Washington.
In the Community
The same commitment to provide the highest standards of service to our clients applies to the active role we take in the communities in which we work. As part of our corporate social responsibility program, we encourage our employees to volunteer and provide the same quality of service to their neighbors as they do to our clients.
Beyond our grant-making foundation and corporate donations, our ultimate goal is to create an entirely new model, one that takes the best of varied communications and work styles and produces a way of doing business that optimizes our success in the intense, competitive, and diverse global market.
