In this role, Heine will be focused on shaping the firm’s acquisition and growth strategy, while also enhancing the firm’s corporate governance standards.
“We are thrilled to have Ramona join the board of MUFG Investor Services Holdings Limited.

She joins MUFG with more than 20 years of experience in the asset management industry, and spent 11 years at UBS Asset Management, most recently as a managing director for multi-manager solutions, products, specialists and fund administration.
“I worked closely with MUFG Investor Services while I was at UBS and saw their high calibre client offerings first-hand and what makes them among the most well-respected asset servicing businesses in the industry,” added Heine on her appointment.
“I look forward to helping refine the vision put forth by the board and lay out a road map for MUFG Investor Services as we continue to innovate and grow to best support clients.”
