Yasuyuki Kanda of Tokio Marine joins Lausanne Summit
Yasuyuki Kanda, CEO/CIO at Tokio Marine Asset Management London will look beyond the macro story in Japan when he presents his views on Japanese equities at the upcoming Pan-Europe Summit Lausanne 2017, taking place 26-28 April at the Beau-Rivage Palace in the Swiss city.
With the Japanese equity market rallying in the second half of 2016, TMAM expects the market to shift back to fundamentals, in which the focus will be on the earnings prospects of individual companies. Relatively speaking, Japan will continue to enjoy more stable politics than a number of other developed markets.
Kanda was appointed in July 2013 as CEO/CIO of TMAM London, and leads the 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, which has now grown to become one of the major players in Japan.
Prior to joining TMAM in 2009, Kanda managed fund of funds portfolios and global equity investments based in the UK, USA, and Japan for eight years and developed multiple cross-border businesses 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.
Kanda holds a BA in Economics from the University of Tokyo and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He is a CFA charterholder.
