Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) has appointed Randy Loo as its Singapore head of global corporate banking and Frik Dreyer as head of leveraged and acquisition finance in Asia-Pacific.

The roles are effective Thursday (Sep 1) and are both based in Singapore, Tokyo-headquartered MUFG said in a press statement.

Loo, who reports to Asia-Pacific head of global corporate and investment banking Richard Yorke, will lead the coverage and development of the bank’s Singapore-based global corporate client portfolio. This includes local corporates, Singapore subsidiaries of global multinationals, as well as bank and non-bank financial institutions.

He has nearly 3 decades of experience in corporate and investment banking and began his career at Bank of America (BOA) in 1994, where he spearheaded the growth of its corporate banking franchise in Singapore and South-east Asia. Loo was BOA’s South-east Asia head of corporate banking and managing director of global corporate and investment banking.

Dreyer, who reports to Asia-Pacific head of investment banking Tatsuya Konishi, will oversee a regional team of specialists in leverage and acquisition finance. They are responsible for executing complex corporate acquisition or leveraged financing.

He spent the last 16 years with Australian multinational bank ANZ, leading leveraged finance teams across the region. Most recently, he was ANZ’s head of corporate finance for South and South-east Asia, in charge of front line syndication, project, export, asset and leveraged finance.
