Tokio Marine’s Kanda to speak at Hamburg Summit
Yasuyuki Kanda (pictured), chief executive officer and chief investment officer of Tokio Marine Asset Management (TMAM) will discuss the implications of macroeconomic changes for stock pickers in Japan at the InvestmentEurope Autumn Pan European Fund Selector Summit held in Hamburg on 28-30 September.
Kanda will argue that while it is widely believed that Japan has a high vulnerability to external factors, the country still offers attractive opportunities. He advocates to look beyond the global macro picture in order to identify new sources of alpha generation.
Having joined TMAM as CEO/CIO for its London offices in 2013, Kanda leads TMAM’s 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 played a vital role in establishing its hedge fund advisory business.
Before joining the group, he managed fund of funds portfolios and global equity investments based in the UK, USA, and Japan for eight years and developed multiple cross-border business in the Japanese financial industry.
He commenced his career in 1995 at Mizuho Financial Group where he developed experience in corporate finance and structured bond origination based in the UK and Japan.
