Sumitomo expands its European team

Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Group, Japan’s largest asset management firm, has expanded its European team with the creation of two new London-based posts.

Akimichi Oi (pictured) will become the firm’s investment management director while Kota Murakami has been appointed global business development director.

Oi will hold responsibility for international sales and the expansion of Sumitomo Mitsui Trust International while Murakami will primarily focus on the development and expansion of the group’s client base.

Oi moves to London from Sumitomo’s Tokyo head office where he was responsible for Asian investor relations as head of global client relations.

He joined Sumitomo in 2001 and has previously worked as a credit analyst and portfolio manager for fixed income strategies.

Murakami joined the trust in 1990 and has worked in the firm’s Hong Kong and New York offices.
