MUFG Investor Services, the global asset servicing arm of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, has appointed Joe Latini as Executive Director of Relationship Management.
Joe will be responsible for managing relationships with existing clients across MUFG Investor Services’ alternative asset servicing platform. He will work alongside the current relationship management team to develop clients’ strategy and ensure they receive the highest level of service throughout the investment cycle.
Formerly a Director of US Sales at ENSO Financial Analytics, Joe brings over 18 years of experience from business development roles in the investment industry. Prior to ENSO, Joe spent the majority of his career at Morgan Stanley in various client facing roles. Most recently he was an Executive Director in Prime Brokerage, acting as a senior member of the Relationship Management team. Joe will be based in New York and will report to Mac Kirschner, Global Head of Client Relationship Management.
The announcement follows a string of 2016 hires that saw MUFG bring in a hall of industry veterans to bolster its growth commitment to asset servicing. This includes Michael McCabe from BNY Mellon’s Alternative Investment Services business, Daniel Trentacosta from Och-Ziff Capital Management Group, Mac Kirschner from BlackRock, and Marc Russell-Jones from State Street.
Mac Kirschner said: “Joe’s experience and background speak to how we differentiate our talent in the asset servicing space. Joe’s ability to develop operational and technological solutions for investment managers will continue to drive deeper partnerships with clients. MUFG is much more than a service provider, and Joe embodies this philosophy. His appointment demonstrates our commitment to our clients as they continue to look for operational leverage.”
Joe Latini said: “MUFG Investor Services’ commitment to strategically grow the business, while consistently providing the highest quality client service and experience is what excites me most. I look forward to working with premiere clientele and continuing to enhance our best in class product. It’s a very exciting time for sure.”
