Today, MUFG announces the appointment of Hussain Hussain as Head of Capital Markets for the Middle East.

Hussain will be responsible for MUFG's Capital Markets franchise in the Middle East, replacing Jonathan Segal, who will return to the securities business in London.

Prior to joining MUFG, Hussain worked for Mizuho as head of Corporates for MENA and Central Asia. He also spent 15 years at RBS and ABN Amro in Debt Capital Markets, responsible for clients across the Middle East and Europe.

In his new role, Jonathan will continue to develop MUFG's capital markets franchise in Germany and Austria, building on existing client relationships and establishing new connections in these countries. Jonathan will also maintain his coverage of African issuers from London.

Anthony Barklam, co-Head of Debt Capital Markets, Loans and Bonds for MUFG in EMEA said:

"Hussain's extensive experience in a number of different regions across the world will play an important role as we look to develop our capital markets offering further in the near future, and I am delighted he has joined MUFG.

"I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Jonathan for his achievements in his previous role, and am pleased that he will continue to be a key figure within the team and MUFG as a whole."
