J.P. Morgan has appointed Hans Janssens as the head of treasury and securities services in Japan.
Janssens, who most recently spent four years as chief financial officer for J.P. Morgan in Japan, will be responsible for the financial performance of TSS Japan, running the day-to-day operations of the treasury services franchise while overseeing the worldwide securities services business, which will continue to be headed by Fumihiko Yonezawa.
Prior to his role as chief financial officer, Janssens worked as an interest rates derivatives trader, and later took on risk control positions in the investment bank followed by the role of deputy chief executive officer of a joint venture operation between J.P. Morgan and a Japanese insurance company.
Thomas DuCharme, TSS chief executive Asia Pacific, says: “I am delighted to have Hans join our Asia Pacific team. The TSS Japan franchise is a core component of our regional footprint, and it is a market that continues to demonstrate strong growth potential. With Hans at the helm, I am confident that we will continue to grow our business by leveraging the reach of our global platform with the depth of our local market expertise, as we continue to deliver seamless and integrated client-focused solutions.”
Year-to-date, J.P. Morgan TSS has hired an additional 500 financial professionals in Asia Pacific.
