History

The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi

BTMU dates back to 1880 as the Mitsubishi Bank, Ltd. (株式会社三菱銀行 Kabushiki kaisha mitsubishi ginkō?) was founded by former samurai Iwasaki Yatarō, and was a core member of Mitsubishi Group companies. Also, in 1880, the Yokohama Specie Bank was established, which was the forerunner of the Bank of Tokyo, Ltd. (株式会社東京銀行 Kabushiki kaisha tōkyō ginkō?), established in 1945 with most of Yokohama Specie Bank's assets. In April 1996, the Mitsubishi Bank, Ltd. and the Bank of Tokyo, Ltd. merged into the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, Ltd. (株式会社東京三菱銀行 Kabushiki kaisha tōkyō mitsubishi ginkō?), becoming the world's largest bank in terms of total assets.[3]

UFJ Bank

UFJ Bank Ltd. (株式会社UFJ銀行 Kabushiki kaisha yūefujei ginkō?) was a Japanese bank originally established by the merger in 2002 of the Sanwa Bank, Ltd. (株式会社三和銀行 Kabushiki kaisha sanwa ginkō?) (based in Osaka), the Tokai Bank, Ltd. (株式会社東海銀行 Kabushiki kaisha tōkai ginkō?) (based in Nagoya), and Toyo Trust and Banking Co., Ltd. (東洋信託銀行株式会社 Tōyo shintaku ginkō kabushiki kaisha?).

The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ

In July 2004, Japan's fourth-largest financial group UFJ Holdings, Inc. offered to merge with Mitsubishi Tokyo Financial Group (MTFG). The merger of the two bank holding companies was completed on October 1, 2005, creating the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group. The core banking units of MTFG and UFJ Holdings, the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, Ltd. and UFJ Bank Ltd., respectively, continued to operate separately until January 1, 2006, when two units combined to form the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd.

Holdings

  • UnionBanCal Corporation (approx 63% in Feb 2005; 68% in 2004; 100% in 2008)
  • Chong Hing Bank (9.66%)
  • Morgan Stanley (21%). On September 29, 2008, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group announced that it would acquire a shareholding in Morgan Stanley for US$9 billion. In the midst of the October 2008 stock market crash, concerns over the completion of the Mitsubishi deal caused a dramatic fall in Morgan Stanley's stock price to levels last seen in 1994. Morgan Stanley's share price recovered considerably after Mitsubishi UFJ closed the deal on October 14, 2008.
  • Aberdeen Asset Management (9.9% in Oct 2008)
