The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi

The financial group dates back to 1880 as the Yokohama Specie Bank later renamed to The Bank Of Tokyo, Ltd. The Bank of Tokyo, Ltd.(株式会社東京銀行; Kabushiki Gaisha Tōkyō Ginkō). Also in 1880, The Mitsubishi Bank, Ltd. (株式会社三菱銀行; Kabushiki-gaisha Mitsubishi Ginkō) was founded by former samurai Yataro Iwasaki and was a core member of Mitsubishi Group companies. In April 1996, The Mitsubishi Bank, Ltd. and The Bank of Tokyo, Ltd. merged.

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

  • 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)
