BNY Mellon as expanded its global markets capabilities with the launch of a new Asia-Pacific capital markets business through The Bank of New York Mellon Securities Company Japan Ltd, based in Tokyo.
The company is now able to provide dealing services on an agency basis across a broad range of fixed income and equity securities for institutional clients in Japan and certain other countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
The company has added a nine-strong team of broker-dealer and capital markets specialists to its existing foreign exchange services capabilities in Tokyo. The new team is led by Eiichiro (Eric) Masaki who has been appointed as head of Japan capital markets sales and reports into Kazuma Yamashita, head of Japan global markets sales. Masaki joins BNY Mellon from Societe Generale, where he was head of non-yen fixed income flow sales. In total, he has more than 20 years’ experience in similar roles.
“We’ve grown the geographic reach, product diversity and trading capabilities of our capital markets business substantially over the last two years in response to US institutions seeking broader capital solutions,” says Art Certosimo, senior executive vice president and chief executive officer of BNY Mellon’s global markets business. “The natural next step in our growth is to bring these world class solutions to our clients internationally, with a focus on Europe and Asia-Pacific.”
