Acadian Asset Management, a specialist in active global and international investing, has opened a new office in Tokyo, Japan, located at the Marunouchi Trust Tower. 

The firm will service clients in the region through Acadian Asset Management (Japan), its wholly owned subsidiary, which has been registered as a Discretionary Investment Management Business by the Director-General of the Kanto Local Finance Bureau of Japan's Ministry of Finance.

"Japan is a highly attractive market for Acadian and we are delighted that we can now provide discretionary asset management services to Japanese institutional clients through our new Tokyo office," says Churchill G Franklin, co-founder and CEO of Acadian. "We have assembled a highly experienced team in Japan led by Managing Director Seiji Ishii, who has extensive experience working with both US and Japanese firms in the Japanese asset management market. Our Japan team will work closely with our head office in Boston and our other locations around the world to bring Acadian's unique quantitative investment management approach to Japanese clients."

As of September 2014, Acadian, along with its wholly owned affiliates, invested over USD69 billion on behalf of over 130 clients including major pension funds, endowments, foundations, governments and other institutions worldwide, of which USD1.3 billion is Japan sourced funds, mainly institutional.

Seiji Ishii, Managing Director of Acadian Japan, says: "Acadian was one of the first firms in the world to apply data and technology to the systematic evaluation of global investments and we can now bring our experience and resources to Japan. In an increasingly data-driven world I expect our offering in a wide range of asset classes will continue to attract strong interest from Japanese institutional investors."
