Tokio Marine’s Kanda to discuss active investing in Japan at Hamburg Summit
Yasuyuki Kanda, CEO and CIO at Tokio Marine Asset Management’s London Office will discuss an active approach to Japanese equities at the InvestmentEurope Pan European Fund Selector Summit held in Hamburg on 11-13 October.
He will argue that investors in Japanese stocks should invest in firms capturing structural shifts. While robotics IoT and demographics are not new investment themes, he argues that Japanese companies have the potential to leap further, leveraging on these shifts behind the scenes.
Kanda has been CEO / CIO at Tokio Marine since 2013 and leads the groups global business development and product management for traditional and alternative asset classes. Prior to this, he was head of Hedge Funds Research at TMAM USA and managed fund of funds portfolios and global equity investments based in the UK, USA, and Japan for eight years.
