Japanese megabank MUFG Bank has appointed Rob Ward as its head of project finance and head of ESG finance, the latter being a newly-created role for the Oceania region.
Ward joined MUFG in 2012 and, since 2016, has led the bank’s advisory business in Oceania. As the new head of project finance, Ward will look to leverage his extensive experience and strong leadership in the energy and infrastructure markets to further strengthen the bank’s business.
With MUFG’s increasingly focused efforts on all aspects of ESG finance, Ward will also take up the newly-created position of head of ESG finance for Oceania.
The role is designed to co-ordinate and build upon the bank’s ESG finance activities in Oceania, which include a range of products, including ESG loans and bonds in all sectors, renewables project finance, and emerging energy technologies.
