May 13, 2019

EquiLend has today announced the opening of its office in Tokyo to service its expanding client base in Japan.

The office is located at Marunouchi Kitaguchi Building 10F, 1-6-5 Marunouchi Chiyoda-ku Tokyo 100-0005 (100-0005 東京都千代田区丸の内 1-6-5 丸の内北口ビルディング 10階).

Yuka Hasumi, Vice President of Sales at EquiLend, has relocated there from Hong Kong. EquiLend says it will be adding new positions in Tokyo soon.

Brian Lamb, CEO of EquiLend, says: "Japan, which has the biggest securities finance market in the Asia-Pacific region, has long been a key market for EquiLend. Our presence in Tokyo allows us to provide unparalleled service to our custody bank, prime broker and e-broker clients in Japan and to continue growing our client base in the market. We look forward to working more closely than ever with our valued Japanese clients."

According to DataLend, Japan represented more than half of the regional loan balance in 2018 with an average on-loan value of $117 billion across both equities and fixed income. The market accounted for 35 percent of revenue earned by lenders across the entire region in 2018, with $778 million.

EquiLend says the new office allows it to extend its on-the-ground support, platform training and local expertise to its clients around the globe.
