Union Bank in San Francisco and its Japanese parent company plan a series of changes to its corporate names and structure, all in response to the Federal Reserve Board's plan to overhaul the way it supervises foreign banks.

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MBFJF) said Friday that it will combine the $105 billion-asset Union Bank with its Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ branches in the U.S. into a single company to be called MUFG Union Bank.
