MUFG Investor Services, the global asset servicing arm of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, has appointed Julie Jeffers-Flynn as Executive Director of business development.
Jeffers-Flynn will be based in New York and report to Michael Rucci, US President and CEO of MUFG Investor Services.
Jeffers-Flynn will support MUFG Investor Services’ mutual fund platform, overseeing the management and awareness for MUFG’s 40 Act fund services expertise to mutual funds, ETFs, UITs and CITs. Her appointment reinforces MUFG’s commitment to growing its investor services business and enhancing client offerings across all investment strategies, asset types and fund structures.
“We are thrilled to have Julie come on board, and at a time when clients are looking for a partner to support their growing mutual fund offerings,” says Rucci. “As investors look to diversify their portfolios with new products, including liquid alternatives, Julie will be an ideal partner for mutual fund clients responding to those changing demands. Her extensive experience in the 40 Act fund space will provide long-term value for our clients as alternative investments continues to enter the mainstream.”
Jeffers-Flynn joins from Brown Brothers Harriman, where she was senior vice president of relationship management and sales for the investor services unit for 13 years. Before that, she served as client executive of BNY Melon’s investment management banking division, managing sales and relationship for US-based financial institutions.
“I am excited to work with the professionals at MUFG Investor Services, among the best in the industry when it comes to quality of service,” says Jeffers-Flynn. “I look forward to working with the team’s impressive clients and strengthening those relationships, helping MUFG continue to serve as a reliable partner that delivers high quality solutions.”
