This is in direct response to client demand and will serve to further add to our already well-established Asian office network and market expertise. As an important global financial centre for alternative assets, our new office will be key to servicing our global and local institutional asset management client base.”
He added: “I am also delighted to see Mark Bennett join SANNE as Country Head of SANNE’s Japanese business. Mark brings a huge wealth of talent, experience and expertise in the institutional asset management space both in Japan and across the region.”
Of his appointment at SANNE, Mark commented: “Joining SANNE and heading up its new Japanese office is an exciting opportunity. SANNE has been on a very strong path of continued growth over the past few years and establishing a foothold in Japan further reinforces our continuing growth aspirations. I look forward to working with my new colleagues in Tokyo and wider colleagues across SANNE.”
SANNE’s Tokyo office will be operational from the start of 2019 and will initially focus on servicing existing real estate clients in the region while continuing to offer core services for alternative asset managers.
