"MUFG is committed to providing our global clients with the products, services, and insights to compete as a top tier global debt solution provider, and Raj is a key investment in that strategy," said Ko Oshima, MUFG International Supervision Executive of Capital Markets. "His 25-year career in debt financing, market expertise, and network of corporate and sponsor-based relationships will elevate our platform and advance our portfolio of capital financing solutions worldwide."

"Raj brings a client-focused strategic lens to our capital markets business, and as we continue to evolve the platform, supplementing our strong investment grade franchise with increasing leveraged finance orientation, his deep expertise will accelerate our success in this area," added Randall Chafetz, Deputy CEO of Global Corporate & Investment Banking who served as the Interim International Head of Capital Markets.

Mr. Kapadia will be based in New York and will report globally to Ko Oshima, International Supervision Executive of Capital Markets in Tokyo. He will have global leadership of MUFG's regional Capital Markets businesses in the Americas, EMEA, and Asia.

"This is an exciting time to join MUFG and to head such an important business and area of growth for the firm," said Raj Kapadia.
