Takatsukasa Alliance, one of Japan’s leading independent asset managers who puts customer’s capital to work by providing active investment solutions across a broad range of capabilities, is pleased to announce that the firm continues with its Asian expansion strategy, the latest development announced by the Board of Directors being a new minority partnership with a Junior Asset Management Company from South Korea. Takatsukasa Alliance has acquired a passive, minority investment in the junior firm, however, specific terms of the transaction were not disclosed due to ongoing contract signing and regulatory guidelines.
Takatsukasa Alliance, through its Executives’ Board, has announced recently that the firm is planning to increase its physical infrastructure of offices within the Asia Pacific Region. The plan included either direct office openings set up fully by the company, like the recent office location it announced in Singapore, or through minority or majority stakes purchase in various junior asset management firms in the region. The goal is to mark the firm’s presence in the most reputable and developed countries in the Asia Pacific territory.
“There are strong signs coming from the governments that are announcing a comeback to the strong ties that Japan and South Korea have developed and built in recent history”, Mr. Daishin Mastuda, Executive Vice Chairman for Takatsukasa Alliance, declared. “This investment is a testament to the growth and institutionalization of our business, and will enable us to take Takatsukasa Alliance to the next level of service on the Korean markets for the benefit of our investors. We look forward to leveraging their best-in-class resources and exceptional talent as we look to expand and strengthen our platform”, Mr. Mastuda concluded.
One of the executives at the Korean Junior Firm said: “Takatsukasa Alliance has developed an extraordinary track record by investing across sectors and geographies. This, combined with the strength of their staff members and processes, has allowed the firm to earn the trust of a diverse set of clients worldwide. Our goal into this partnership will be to help enable their continued growth in various private equity products, as well as their further expansion into newer areas like real estate and private credit on our local markets.”
