MUFG today announces the appointment of Louis L'Heureux as Head of Financial Sponsors for the Leveraged Finance Division in EMEA.

Leading the team in the EMEA region, L'Heureux will focus particularly on developing and maintaining long-term client relationships with private equity funds.

Louis L'Heureux joins MUFG from RBC Capital, where he was Director of the Leveraged Finance team. L'Heureux has worked for almost 20 years in a wide range of Canadian and London-based financial institutions including CIBC World Markets, Bank of New York and GE Capital.

Nick Atkinson, Head of Acquisition Finance and Strategic Advisory, EMEA, at MUFG said:

"The volatile market in which we operate presents both challenges and opportunities. For us, and our clients, to succeed we need to consolidate and grow our relationships to ensure we are always a relevant partner offering the most appropriate solutions, regardless of clients' needs."

“Louis' impressive experience and skills will be a vital asset to us. As we expand our teams, MUFG gets closer to our ambition of becoming the world's most trusted financial group."

Louis' appointment follows the recent arrival of Mathias Noack as Head of Syndications in EMEA. Louis, who will be based in London, takes up his post with immediate effect. He will report to Nick Atkinson, Head of Acquisition Finance and Strategic Advisory.
