StormHarbour Announces Addition of Japanese Broker-Dealer
Wednesday, December 1, 2010
 
StormHarbour Partners continues its international expansion by today announcing the launch of a broker-dealer in Tokyo, established through the integration of NSH Securities Co. Ltd. into StormHarbour Partners. The new company is called StormHarbour Japan Ltd. (www.StormHarbour.com/jp/).
 
Led by Michimasa Naka as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Principal, StormHarbour Japan Ltd. will serve a strategically important function in a core market for StormHarbour Partners and further extends the momentum the firm has been building globally and particularly in Asia-Pacific this year after establishing broker-dealers in Singapore and Hong Kong in the first quarter.
 
StormHarbour Partners was founded in March 2009 and with the opening of the Japanese broker-dealer the firm will have a significant and fully operational presence in six major financial centres including New York, London and Geneva – incomparable geographical growth among new capital markets and advisory-focused financial services firms.
 
The Tokyo team will provide institutional investors, corporates and high-net-worth clients in Japan with specialist advice and services in sales and trading, structuring and advisory, capital markets, across fixed income, equities and alternative investment products. 
 
Michimasa Naka, who has over 20-years of investment banking and global markets experience, most recently as Deputy President and Head of Global Investor Sales for Citigroup Global Markets Japan, will lead a team of 13 senior professionals currently at StormHarbour Japan Ltd in Tokyo.
