Business Areas – MUFG

Where you could join us

Business Areas

Our business is split into three main areas Global Corporate and Investment Banking, Global Markets and Corporate Functions. Each play a key role in helping us serve the needs of our clients and work towards becoming the world’s most trusted financial group.

GLOBAL CORPORATE AND INVESTMENT BANKING

This incredibly broad business area includes specialised teams across Coverage & Structured Finance, Capital Markets and Transaction Banking.

Corporate and Investment Banking covers two different specialisms within our business. First, there’s Coverage. This is all about client relationship building. Getting to know their business inside and out, it’s fast-paced and people-focused, working across all kinds of industries, territories and banking products. Not only will you spearhead the marketing efforts of various product teams, you’ll make sure the right people are in front of the right clients, at the right time.

Yet, if a client’s needs are too big or complex for traditional lending, this is where our specialist finance teams step in. Here you can work across Project, Commodity, Leveraged or Strategic Finance, and Securitisation.

As an analyst, you’ll have the opportunity to complete three rotations across our various teams, before choosing one to join permanently.

There are all sorts of reasons why clients might want to raise additional capital: to grow their business, to optimise the efficiency of their capital structure, or access liquidity across international capital markets. And you’ll be the one to help them do it. You could become a specialist in credit, derivatives or debt capital markets, and provide clients with comprehensive financing solutions, using MUFG’s global platform to maximise access to the international capital markets.

Transaction Banking is a fast-growing part of MUFG. And that’s because it supports our clients’ key needs to manage their business and reach their goals. It means you’ll help with everything from day-to-day operations to managing payment and risks, as well as funding working capital. Being part of Transaction Banking will give you an exciting insight into how we achieve the very best solutions for our clients, and how we run their operations in the most efficient way possible and support the growth of their business.

CORPORATE FUNCTIONS

This is all about servicing our clients. The teams here ensure our systems, processes, financial models and the data we rely on are absolutely watertight.

Our compliance function is responsible for ensuring that laws, regulations and rules of exchanges and markets are adhered to within every country where we operate. For you, this means supporting senior management with a range of responsibilities. You’ll develop the skills you need to report requirements, establish necessary policies and procedures, and oversee compliance in financial and non-financial departments alike. You’ll also learn how to advise management and staff across our firm on a variety of regulatory matters.

Every big decision we make and piece of advice we give is driven by data. And in this team, you’ll determine how that data flows throughout MUFG. You’ll also report on everything from Market Risk and Credit Risk to Profit & Loss and Capital. As part of this, you’ll make sure the numbers we use are accurate and delivered to the right people, at the right time, in a format that’s easy to understand and offers maximum insight. Bottom line? The work you produce will be used to make key strategic business decisions

This team ensures all of our firm’s profits and losses are accurately managed and reported. Their role is to protect the assets, capital and reputation of the firm. This involves analysing revenues, carrying out valuation control, and delivering accurate and timely information to management. You’ll get to work closely with people from across the organisation, all while working closely with the Front Office Traders, Risk Management Teams & Operations (to name a few). It’s a unique opportunity to develop in-depth product knowledge, including Interest Rates, FX, Credit, Equity and Hybrids, including vanilla and exotics portfolios.

The Global Financial Crimes Division make sure that our organisation conducts its business in such a way that protects our reputation, our business and our clients within the regulatory and legal framework. In this team, you’ll be responsible for the establishment and maintenance of effective systems and controls to protect clients’ assets, and to mitigate the risk that MUFG might be used to further financial crime.

Risk management is absolutely vital to what we do, as it helps us deliver the best investment solutions and provide healthy returns for our stakeholders. In other words, managing risk effectively is critical to our success as a firm. Join this team, and you’ll help identify, measure, control, mitigate, monitor and report on material risk exposures to our international business. These can range from Credit Risk and Market Risk, to Enterprise Risk, Liquidity Risk and Operational Risk. Our different specialist teams analyse markets, client activities, valuation models, regulatory requirements and the control environment to ensure that any potential losses fall within MUFG’s appetite for risk.

Technology touches every part of our organisation – from our traders placing a trade to our risk managers utilising technology to analyse our risk exposure. Technology is integral to what we do and it’s why we invest so much in developing state-of-the-art infrastructure. You’ll tackle and solve some of the most complex problems we face. So you’ll need to understand the IT needs of a host of key functions, and then help us respond with market-leading innovation.
