Yasuyuki Kanda of Tokio Marine to discuss Japan opportunities in Stockholm
Yasuyuki Kanda, CEO/CIO, London Office at Tokio Marine Asset Management, is set to appear at the upcoming Pan-Nordic Fund Selector Summit taking place in Stockholm 10-11 March, to discuss the outlook for Japan following 20 years of deflation.
Tokio Marine AM sees corporate management in Japan organising significant turnaround, including improvements in ROE on behalf of investors, which in turn is creating a more visible divided between “winners” and “losers” in the local stock market. Understanding this division is one advantage that stockpickers can enjoy.
Tokio Marine AM has some $60bn equivalent in AUM after some three decades in the industry. Kanda, who was appointed CEO/CIO of Tokio Marine AM London in July 2013 is responsible for leading the manager’s global business development and product management for both traditional and alternative asset classes.
Previously based in New York, Kanda there headed hedge fund research. Before joining TMA in 2009, Kanda managed fund of funds portfolios and global equity investments. His career in the industry started in 1995 with Mizuho Financial Group.
