MUFG's equity capital markets platform offers the strength of the underwriting power of the group, together with targeted distribution channels to our corporate issuers, with particular value-added expertise in both Japan and US markets.
Our investor coverage outside the Japanese market is distinctive, in that we focus on US middle-market funds. These complement the marketing process offered by many competitors who place a greater emphasis on the most significant investors in the market.
We offer unique insight into Japanese and Asian investors, based on our heritage and deep relationships with institutional investors across the region. These groups are increasingly looking to the international markets – the US in particular – for growth and yield-oriented investments.
For corporate clients seeking to execute equity-related deals, we are able to provide access to investors across Asia, Europe and the US. Our teams provide underwriting and execution activities as bookrunner/lead-manager, as well as supporting the origination of equity primary deals. This includes convertible and exchangeable bonds in all major currencies.
The work of our equity capital markets team is underpinned by MUFG's international scale, significant financial strength, and global network that covers close to 50 countries and over 2,300 locations. We aim to build long-term relationships through our expertise and client-focused approach to each project.
