January 06, 2021

The deal is expected to close in the first quarter of 2021.


U.S. Bank announced today that it entered into a definitive agreement to purchase the Debt Servicing and Securities Custody Services client portfolio of MUFG Union Bank, N.A. Under the terms of the agreement, we will acquire approximately 600 client relationships and $320 billion in assets under custody and administration.

“This transaction is a great fit for U.S. Bank. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to increase our presence on the West Coast and solidify our position as a leading provider of corporate trust, institutional trust and fund custody services,” said Gunjan Kedia, vice chair of U.S. Bank Wealth Management and Investment Services. 

Kedia added, “U.S. Bank is known for working with clients one-on-one to understand their unique requirements and deliver customized, proactive solutions that help them meet their objectives. We look forward to putting the resources of U.S. Bank to work for our new clients and providing an exemplary client experience.”

“After a thorough analysis of our market position in the Debt Servicing and Securities Custody product areas, we made the decision to sell these products and services within our Transaction Banking portfolio, which will enable us to reinvest capital in other strategic areas of focus to the benefit of our clients and MUFG Union Bank,” said Ranjana Clark, head of Global & Americas Transaction Banking and Bay Area President. “For those client relationships that are being acquired, we are confident that U.S. Bank will deliver high-quality service and support.”

Our Investment Services division has more than $7.7 trillion in assets under custody and administration, globally. In addition to offering global corporate trust and custody services, we also offer alternative investment and fund custody and administration services.

The deal was signed Dec. 23, 2020 and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2021, subject to regulatory approval and satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Financial terms are not disclosed.
