Most recently, as Chief Investment Officer at SMBC Trust Bank, he launched its asset management business and achieved 200 billion Yen in assets under management.  

Tomoaki will strengthen connectivity and collaboration between the Japan Capital Markets business with Cushman & Wakefield’s Asia Pacific and global network to ensure that clients in Japan and the broader region truly benefit from the global capital markets platform, which now has over 1,000 capital markets professionals.
