ING IM Japan appoints chief executive
ING Investment Management has appointed a new chief executive for the firm’s Japanese division.
Hiroshi Kimura will succeed Douglas Hymas in running the ING IM Japan business.
Previously Kimura was managing director of client relations at AllianceBernstein where he built the intermediary business and drove the growth of assets under management from $3bn (£2bn, €2.5bn) to $10bn through national distributors and regional banks.
He also held leadership roles at Credit Suisse Asset Management, Rothschild Asset Management and Taiheiyo Asset Management.
The Dutch firm said they expect Kimura to take the firm “to the next level” by contributing to ING IM’s growth plans in Japan.
