Launching MUFG Bank (Europe) N.V.
1 May 2016 marks the first day of operations for our new bank MUFG Bank (Europe) N.V. (Herein after MUFG Bank)
Historically, our bank has had a presence in the Netherlands for more than 50 years – under its predecessor bank, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ (Holland) N.V. – successfully supporting our client base and governing our businesses in the Netherlands and Central and Eastern Europe through our EU banking license. With the official opening of MUFG Bank, I am pleased to reconfirm our commitment to the region by expanding our proven successful business model – from 1 May 2016 our business in Belgium joins our established EU network.
Our vision in establishing this new bank is to create a stronger business in continental Europe to support our growing client base. As we enhance our ability to provide cross-border services and connectivity to the wider MUFG network, we will be better placed to meet the changing needs of our clients, who are expanding their wide-ranging businesses and moving towards a business model that treats the EU as a single market.
We are proud to have introduced an efficient and sustainable business structure that will enhance our client service capability, in support of our vision to be the world’s most trusted financial group.
