The MUFG Way

At MUFG, we are committed to empowering a brighter future. This purpose, along with our Values and Vision, form the "MUFG Way."

The MUFG Way underpins our aspiration to provide the highest quality services for clients, while also building trust within our communities and enabling progress in society more broadly.  We rely on our shared Purpose, Vision, and Values to shape our culture and business strategies to reach our goals. 

Isabelle Frank

At MUFG, we define culture through our Culture Principles, or the behaviors we expect of each other and rooted in our core values. We hold one another accountable to make sure that what we say, and what we do, aligns with the MUFG Way and our aspirations as a company.

Director, Culture & Employee Experience

Our Culture Principles

Everyone at MUFG plays a part in upholding our culture. Our Culture Principles articulate a set of shared behaviors that all colleagues embed into their everyday actions, consistently and conscientiously, to create a more high-performing organization.

Our Values

The Culture Principles are guided by our values both globally—Integrity & Responsibility, Professionalism & Teamwork, and Challenge & Agility – and in the Americas —Integrity, Respect, Service, Collaboration, Inclusion, and Stewardship. These values represent the core beliefs that have defined us throughout our history and anchor our relationships with clients and colleagues, as well as the communities we serve.

The Bright Future We Empower

In these rapidly changing times, all our stakeholders strive to overcome difficulties and move toward a more sustainable future. MUFG’s unchanging reason for existing is to support and empower our members, customers, partners, future generations, local communities, and society in realizing their ambitions.  

The MUFG Way empowers our colleagues to realize the value of their unique contributions within their individual roles. In “MUFG Way – Bringing it to Life”, see how our global colleagues bring the MUFG Way and our culture to life every single day.
