RELATED TOPICS​

Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Group, Japan’s largest asset manager with USD446 billion assets under management, has appointed Yukihiro Murota as managing director of Sumitomo Mitsui Trust International Limited (SMTIL).

Murota is taking over the role from Hisaya Kambayashi who is returning to SuMi TRUST’s head office in Tokyo, where he will continue his work in developing SuMi TRUST’s global asset management business.
 
Murota will have responsibility for managing all aspects of SuMi TRUST’s global asset management business and driving growth in the EMEA region. He will be based in SuMi TRUST’s offices in London.
 
Murota joined SMTIL in April 2016. Prior to this, he was an associate general manager of the fiduciary business planning department at Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank (SMTB), the parent company of SMTIL, where he was responsible for business planning for the asset management business.
 
Murota has had a 25-year career at SMTB. Between 2005 and 2009, he was in charge of client portfolio management for public pension clients for the bank, including some of the largest pension funds in Japan. From 1996 to 2005 he was a portfolio manager of global bond funds at SMTB, and also gained experience as a strategist on world economy and markets.
 
Murota says: “By pursuing untapped opportunities and growing our asset management business in the EMEA region, we are well placed to capitalise on the increasing investor appetite for Japanese equities, and to meet investor demand for an expanded range of products including global equities and private assets. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the UK team to build on our existing success and increase our presence in the asset management space in the region.”
