Tokio Marine Asset Management, a Japanese and Asian equities specialist and one of the largest discretionary investment firms in Japan, has announced the launch of its London asset management business and authorisation from the Financial Services Authority.

Heading the office will be Yuichi ‘Alex’ Takayama, who was recently appointed chief executive of the London operation having joined from Mizuho Trust & Banking.

Yoichiro Iwama, president of Tokio Marine Asset Management (photo), says: "The unveiling of our European offering and the opening of the London office is a matter of great pride to us all. Having secured a leading position in Japan over the past 23 years, managing over USD45bn for public and private pension funds, we felt the time was right to turn our attention towards establishing a European presence. The recent unprecedented market turmoil has presented us with a significant opportunity to offer superior local investment expertise, diversified, innovative products and a strong track record to the market."

TMA London intends to provide business development and real time client servicing to European institutional investors looking for exposure to asset classes and strategies focused on Japanese equities, Asian equities, Japanese fixed income, long/short hedge funds, private equity and fund of hedge funds.

The investment strategies and products will be managed by TMA’s team of 72 investment professionals based in Tokyo, Singapore, London and New York.

Takayama says: "Today’s announcement is a sign of TMA’s long-term commitment to Europe and its dedication to institutional excellence. One distinguishing feature of the company is the exhaustive and meticulous analytical research skills and capabilities employed across the team of investment professionals – we have, in fact, been operating a successful research office in Europe since 1990. We look forward to bringing the firm’s experience to bear for its new audience."
