Matt Maley joined Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group as a managing director and head of the bank’s Private Equity Sponsor coverage group, where he will lead and coordinate coverage of private equity sponsor clients. He will be based in New York and report to Robert Smock, head of Corporate Advisory for the Americas.

Maley spent more than 14 years with Deutsche Bank, where he was most recently a senior member of the Financial Sponsors Group. While there, he covered a number of the leading private equity sponsors and completed a significant number of LBOs and debt and equity financings, including many as left bookrunner/lead arranger.

Maley began his career with Goldman Sachs before spending four years as chief financial officer of a private software company.

“Bringing Matt aboard to manage our Private Equity Sponsor coverage group is a critical step for MUFG as we build our presence with this important global client base,” Smock said. “Matt’s experience and relationships in the industry will be invaluable as we seek to bring strategic ideas and capital to support sponsor investments.”
