Tokio Marine’s Yasuyuki Kanda joins Lausanne Summit
Yasuyuki Kanda, CEO/CIO, London Office at Tokio Marine Asset Management, will provide delegates to the Pan-European Summit Lausanne 2016 with an update on Japanese equities, as he looks beyond the macro story affecting the country.
Although the Nikkei 225 index managed to outperform most other developed markets through 2015, its rate of appreciation was slower than the rally seen previously in 2012 off the early stages of expectations surrounding so called Abenomics. With the effects of government fiscal and monetary policy on the stock market diminishing, Kanda argues that it is time to look more closely at fundamentals of companies at the micro level to understand the investment opportunties.
Kanda was appointed CEO/CIO of Tokio Marine Asset Management (TMAM) London in July 2013. As such he leads global business development and product management for traditional and alternative asset classes. Previously, he was head of Hedge Funds Research at TMAM USA, including helping establish its hedge fund advisory business, which has also grown in Japan. Kanda started his career in 1995 at Mizuho Financial Group where he worked on corporate finance and structured bond origination based in the UK and Japan.
The Lausanne Summit once more takes place at the Beau Rivage Palace, and offers boardroom presentations, networking opportunities through coffee breaks, lunches and dinners, as well as a keynote provided by Viviane Reding, member of the European parliament and vice president of the European Commission 2010-2014.
