Inspired by Our Past, Creating Value for the Future
The Americas is one of the global company’s three regions, along with Asia/Oceania and Europe/Middle East/Africa. In the Americas, BTMU meets the global needs of corporate and institutional customers in the United States, Canada, and Latin America through 24 offices and subsidiaries, such as BTMU Canada, BTMU México, BTMU Brazil, BTMU Capital Corporation, and Union Bank. We offer an extensive scope of commercial and investment banking products and services to businesses, governments, and individuals doing business in our region and worldwide. Not counting Union Bank, we have more than 2,500 employees in nine countries and are headquartered in New York City.
BTMU has deep historical roots in both Japan and the Americas, encompassing a preferred financial manager for the Tokugawa shogunate, an entrepreneurial former samurai in the earliest days of the Meiji Restoration, the California Gold Rush, and coffee plantations in South America. At the same time, we are thoroughly modern, providing corporate and trade-related credit facilities, money market, foreign exchange, remittances, cash management, and deposit services to a wide range of clients. We are committed to serving the communities where we do business. Our corporate social responsibility activities include a grant-making foundation, corporate donations, and a robust volunteer program. Our ultimate goal is not only to build bridges between different ways of conducting business — Japanese, North American, Latin American. It is to create an entirely new way, one that takes the best of varying communications and working styles and produces a way of doing business that will optimize our success in the intense, competitive, and diverse global market.
