Nippon Capital Asset Management to Increase Headcount

Nippon Capital Asset Management to grow headcount after success of management fee initiatives.

Osaka, Japan, November 07, 2015 --( Osaka-based investment house, Nippon Capital Asset Management J-LLC, is to take on additional personnel as a consequence of the success of its recent initiatives to cut management fees for both institutional and private clients.

The firm’s tally of institutional clients has risen sharply this year after it fired a shot across the bows of what it called “complacent” rivals in the Asia Pacific wealth and investment management industry by reducing fees for institutional clients by 25%.

It recently followed up with a similar cut for private clients and early indications are that the initiative has received a warm welcome.

“We’re now experiencing one of those rare ‘nice-to-have’ problems,” said Charles Worth, Executive Vice-President and Co-Chief Investment Officer at Nippon Capital Asset Management J-LLC. “We need to hire more portfolio managers, client-facing account managers for the institutional clients and professional advisers for the private clientele so we’ll be launching a recruitment drive in the coming weeks.”

Toshiro Noda, Senior Vice-President at Nippon Capital Asset Management has been largely credited with the surge in institutional clients thanks to his decision to undercut the pricing structure of major rivals operating locally in Japan and further afield.

“We have heard that some competitors are beginning to reduce management fees too; no doubt aimed at retaining existing customers. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but it’s important to note that we were first,” noted Worth.

Nippon Capital Asset Management says its recruitment campaign will begin with a series of banner advertisements in industry publications and at “one or two” wealth/investment management roadshow events.
