Mitsubishi UFJ Financial (MUFG) history:

On April 2, 2001, the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi (today’s Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ), Mitsubishi Trust Bank (today’s Mitsubishi UFJ Trust Bank) and Japan Trust Bank (absorbed and merged by Mitsubishi Trust Bank on October 1, 2001) passed shares Transfer to form Mitsubishi Tokyo Financial Group (MTFG). On October 1, 2005, MTFG and Japan’s fourth largest financial group UFJ Holdings merged to form Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group.

In July 2004, UFJ Holdings proposed to merge with Mitsubishi Tokyo Financial Group due to the inflated non-performing debt problem. On October 1, 2005, the two companies officially announced a successful merger. With the reorganization of UFJ and MTFG, their respective trust and bond divisions also merged into Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking Corporation and Mitsubishi UFJ Securities Co., Ltd. at the same time. Among them, Mitsubishi UFJ Trust Bank has huge overseas assets and is also one of the largest investment institutions in the world.

On January 1, 2006, the commercial banking divisions of MTFG and UFJ, which were independently operated, announced the merger and became the new Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ (The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ).

In September 2008, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group announced a cooperation with Morgan Stanley and purchased 21% of its shares. On September 29, MUFJ prepared to purchase US$3 billion in common stock plus 6 billion in preferred stock. On October 10, Morgan Stanley’s stock price plummeted, and MUFG decided to change all to preferred stocks in order to avoid unexpected losses.

On July 21, 2011, Mitsubishi UFJ Bank converted its preferred shares of Morgan Stanley into 22.4% Morgan Stanley common stock.

On December 9, 2011, Mitsubishi UFJ Trust Bank will invest about 30 billion yen to acquire a stake in AMP Capital, an investment management company in Australia, to obtain about 15% of its equity.

On November 6, 2013, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ purchased more than 51% of the shares of Bank of Ayudhya, the fifth largest bank in Thailand, for approximately 380 billion yen. The bank’s other major shareholder, the Thai Li Zhizheng family, retained 22% of the equity after the transaction and operated Ayutthaya Bank in a joint operation with Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group.

On April 1, 2018, the name of the commercial bank of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group was changed from “The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd.” to “MUFG Bank , Ltd.)”.
