After graduating from Kansai University, I joined Nomura Securities. After working at a branch as a rep, I conducted research on the US financial industry and made management recommendations to Japanese financial institutions at the Nomura Institute of Capital Markets Research NY office. After returning to Japan, I formulated Nomura Securities’ sales strategies department and surveyed the financial industry around the world. I joined Money Design Co., Ltd. in April 2016, and have been the CEO of the company since March 2017. In August 2020, I became independent as a result of MBO of 400F, a subsidiary of Money Design.
