Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) will launch a capital markets strategy group to advise and equip C-suite audiences with insights to anticipate, understand and respond to important market and macroeconomic developments.

Tom Joyce, who joined MUFG from Deutsche Bank, will lead the new group, which will be integrated across MUFG’s capital markets and corporate and investment banking businesses. Joyce will be based in New York and report jointly to Brian Cogliandro, co-head of capital markets for MUFG, and Mark Thumser, head of strategy and business operations in the global corporate and investment bank for MUFG.

“The markets in 2020 have been whipsawed by an array of unexpected macro events, and Tom and his capital markets strategy team will help our clients understand and better make sense of the world in which they operate,” Bill Mansfield, head of global markets in the Americas for MUFG, said. “Tom will further advance MUFG as a source of intellectual capital, and our investment in his team is a doubling down on our commitment to our clients as a trusted advisor and source of market expertise.”

“Tom and team will be value-additive to our clients on day one and position us to capture further mind and market share,” Kevin Cronin, head of global corporate and investment banking in the Americas for MUFG, said. “Tom’s network of relationships is virtually unmatched and spans C-suite Fortune 500 and equivalent investor audiences worldwide.”

Joyce has 25 years of capital markets and investment banking experience and joined MUFG after a 15-year career at Deutsche Bank where he led its capital markets strategy group. Prior to Deutsche Bank, he spent more than a decade at Lehman Brothers in multiple capital markets and advisory roles.
