Markit Opens Tokyo Office and Reinforces Global Presence

An office in Tokyo has been opened by Markit Group Limited (Markit). Katsumi Mizutani, who will head the Tokyo office, will be responsible for business development in Japan. Mizutani will focus on bringing in additional contributors and subscribers to the Markit pricing and valuations services across all asset classes. He commented: “Japanese financial institutions are under increasing pressure from regulators to adopt more rigid risk management standards, given their growing exposure to derivatives and illiquid assets. In light of this focus, there has never been a greater need for robust, independent pricing and valuations in Japan.”
