MUFG Investor Services expands FX offering with senior hires

RELATED TOPICS​

MUFG Investor Services, the global asset servicing arm of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, has made two new senior hires as part of the expansion of its FX services offering. Dr Hans Jacob Feder joined as a Managing Director and Global Head of FX Services and Alberto (Al) Baptiste joined as Executive Director and Head of FX Sales. This expansion demonstrates the firm’s continued commitment to delivering cutting edge FX solutions to its clients.

With these hires, MUFG Investor Services will expand its capabilities in providing comprehensive FX hedging solutions, such as its market leading FX Overlay product, as well as enhanced FX services around custody, translation hedging and payment conversions. MUFG Investor Services’ FX Overlay product provides fully integrated hedging to take on all aspects of FX administration, including hedge initiation, hedge roll calculation, execution, tolerance level monitoring, subscription and redemption re-balancing and reporting.

Feder will be based in MUFG’s London office and will report to John Sergides, CEO of MUFG Investor Services. He joins MUFG Investor Services from JP Morgan Securities, where his most recent role was Managing Director and Head of FX Services Execution. Prior to joining JP Morgan, he served as Managing Director at Deutsche Bank where he led the development of their passive currency overlay product and was the global head of FX Trading for Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management. Prior to joining Deutsche Bank, Feder spent five years at Goldman Sachs International.

Baptiste will be based in New York and report to Michael McCabe, Managing Director and Global Head of Business Development for Product and Marketing. He comes to MUFG from Bank of New York Mellon, where he ran the bank’s FX overlay sales function for 11 years.

“We are keenly focused on bolstering our FX offering this year, as we have seen a significant increase in demand from asset managers for support in this space. Both Hans and Al are familiar with building FX services and bring more than 50 years of combined experience to our team,” says John Sergides, CEO of MUFG Investor Services. “With their expertise on board, we will continue to elevate our offerings and expand our services to meet the evolving needs of our clients in currency overlay.”
