Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. (MUFG) announced it had hired Robert Danziger, a 25-year industry veteran, as a Managing Director to focus on its U.S. investment-grade syndicated loans business.

Based in New York, Mr. Danziger's responsibilities will include Midwestern U.S. as well as General Industry clients. He will report to Jeffrey Knowles, Managing Director, and Co-Head of MUFG's Debt Capital Markets, Americas.

Mr. Danziger joins the bank from Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., where he had been Head of Investment Grade Loan Capital Markets for the Americas since 2004.

"Rob brings a wealth of experience and relationships to our U.S. syndicated loan business," said Mr. Knowles. "By adding him to our deep bench, MUFG is now able to offer its valued clients the talent and experience of another senior-level loan market expert. We look forward to adding Rob's insight and advice to our growing debt capital markets platform."

MUFG has steadily climbed in the U.S. investment grade loan rankings (for bookrunners), jumping from 10th in 2009 to fifth for year-to-date 2017; MUFG also ranked fifth for full-year 2016, the highest position among non-U.S. based financial institutions.1

While at Deutsche Bank, Mr. Danziger was a member of groups that won IFR's Global Loan House of the year in 2013 and Deal of the Year in 2010. Mr. Danziger also worked at Citicorp Securities Inc./Salomon Smith Barney, First Chicago and Chemical Bank.
