Newedge, a global multi-asset broker, has appointed Shin Shinozuka to lead its Japan-based business.
Shinozuka-san took up his new role as head of Japan on 18 February, replacing Yoshio Kuno, who plans to retire at the end of March.
His role will include the continued strategic development of Newedge’s Japanese business, reporting directly to Laurent Cunin, head of Asia-Pacific.
Prior to joining Newedge as head of compliance in 2008, Shinozuka-san worked at Société Générale Securities North Pacific in various roles for the firm’s futures and options brokerage. He has also held roles at Morgan Stanley, Schroders and Merrill Lynch.
“We are pleased to have Shinozuka-san as the head of Japan,” said Cunin. “With his industry experience and proven track record in business management, Shinozuka-san will play a significant role to deliver operational efficiency and growth of Newedge’s business in Japan.”
