Based in Tokyo, Shiroyama will seek to strengthen the existing relationships with local partners, investors and consultants, as well as developing new relationships.

He will report to Marcel de Bruijckere, Director of Institutional Business, Asia Pacific, who is based at M&G’s Singapore office.

Institutional Business Push

Shiroyama has more than 18 years of experience in the Japanese market and prior to joining M&G was Head of Tokyo Product & Solutions Team at PIMCO Japan, covering client and consultant relationship management and providing portfolio analysis to institutional investors. He started his career with Goldman Sachs Asset Management Japan.

«We are extremely pleased that a high calibre professional with the experience of Taro Shiroyama has joined us to develop our institutional business in Japan.
