Birch Century International to establish Tokyo office

Birch Century International, an alternative asset management firm, has unveiled plans to launch an office in Tokyo in March 2018.

The new office, which has been authorised by the Financial Services Agency of Japan, will make the company’s alternative investment and asset management platforms available to accredited investors.

It will be led by Kosuke Maeda as CEO and Karl Schwimmer as director of investments, both of whom have held executive roles at the Hong Kong office of the firm.

“We appreciate that our retail clients and institutional investors demand an investment service that is truly diversified and driven by value. As U.S. equity and fixed income assets currently offer limited value, our focus in Japan is to uncover opportunities that we believe adheres to our value investment philosophy,” Maeda said.

At the same time, the firm also announced plans to create a Japanese focused alternative investment fund.
