Birch Century International opens New Tokyo office

RELATED TOPICS​

Birch Century International, a global alternative asset manager, is to open a new Tokyo based office, authorised by the Financial Services Agency of Japan. Birch Century International Japan will provide accredited investors with access to the company’s alternative investment and asset management platforms.

Building upon Birch Century International’s alternative investment capabilities, the Tokyo office is scheduled to open in March 2018, and will expand the firm’s global platform whilst enhancing its ability provide investors with access to specialised market opportunities.
 
With offices based in New York and Hong Kong, the announcement of the new Tokyo office further cements Birch Century International’s Asian presence at a time when many Western markets present investors with limited options to capture reasonable equity and fixed income value.
 
Responsible for the development of the new Tokyo office, Birch Century International has appointed Kosuke Maeda as Chief Executive Officer and Karl Schwimmer as Director of Investments. Both representatives have performed executive duties at the company’s Hong Kong office since 2009 and 2006 respectively.
 
“The opening of our office in Tokyo is another step forward as Birch Century continues to build on its position as a leading provider of institutional alternatives and asset management services. Our presence in Asia continues to grow as we provide investors with access to opportunities supported by our deep knowledge and understanding of regional and global markets,” says Maeda. “We appreciate that our retail clients and institutional investors demand an investment service that is truly diversified and driven by value. As U.S. equity and fixed income assets currently offer limited value, our focus in Japan is to uncover opportunities that we believe adheres to our value investment philosophy.”
 
Despite the announcement to open its Tokyo regional office, Birch Century International has been active in Japan for several years, and has established a client portfolio of public companies and institutions.
 
By increasing its presence within Japan, the company expects to strengthen its regional networking whilst anticipating the formation and management of a Japanese focused alternative investment fund.
