MUFG Investor Services Names Latini To Relationship Management Role

Apr 6 2017 | 5:30pm ET

Global asset servicing specialist MUFG Investor Services has named former ENSO Financial Analytics executive Joe Latini as the company’s new executive director of relationship management.

In his new role, Latini will be responsible for managing relationships with existing clients across MUFG’s alternative asset servicing platform, according to a statement. 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.

Prior to his new position, Latini was a director of U.S. sales for ENSO Financial Analytics. Beforehand, he spent the majority of his career at Morgan Stanley in various client facing roles, most recently as an executive director in prime brokerage, where he acted as a senior member of the relationship management team. He 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, the company said. 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.

“Joe’s experience and background speak to how we differentiate our talent in the asset servicing space,” said Kirschner in the statement. “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.”

MUFG Investor Services is the global asset-servicing arm of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, one of the largest banks in the world with $2.9 trillion in assets. The firm has provides a range of solutions from fund administration, middle-office outsourcing, custody, foreign exchange, fund of hedge fund financing, trustee services and depository to securities lending and other banking services to more than 2,400 funds across all investment strategies, asset types and fund structures.
