Pantheon opens Tokyo office

Friday, July 06, 2018
Opalesque Industry Update - Pantheon has today announced the opening of its office in Tokyo.

This will be our seventh international office and marks a milestone in the development and growth of Pantheon's Japanese business.

We would also like to welcome three new members of staff, all Japanese and all of whom will be based in our Tokyo office.

Our local Japanese presence will be led by Akitoshi Yamada, who joins us as Managing Director, Head of Japan from Nippon Life. Both well-known and highly respected in the local market, Yamada-san will work alongside Ryo Okazaki, who has joined us from Mitsubishi Corporation Asset Management as Vice President in our Client Service team, and Makiko Hagiwara, who started with us as Compliance Officer and Office Manager during June.

Pantheon's Tokyo Office will initially be located on the 20th Floor of the Executive Centre in the Shin-Marunouchi Center Building, in close proximity to Tokyo Station. In keeping with Pantheon's emphasis on the environmental awareness of our office buildings, the Shin-Marunouchi Center Building provides an environmentally friendly workspace and is certified by the Development Bank of Japan as a Gold Standard Green Building.

Paul Ward, Pantheon Managing Partner commented: "We are humbled to have been chosen by our Japanese clients to manage their private asset programs and look forward to furthering long and prosperous relationships with them. Our new local presence and outstanding team will further strengthen our commitment to deliver exemplary and highly responsive service to our Japanese clients. It is an honour for us to open our office in Tokyo."
