North Asia

Masayuki Kaneko, chief executive officer of Japan (AMJP), will take on additional responsibilities as head of institutional sales for North Asia, effective May 10.  He succeeds Brenda Wong, who will leave the firm for personal reasons.

In his expanded role, Kaneko will spearhead the institutional sales team in North Asia with a focus in Hong Kong, mainland China, Taiwan, Korea and Japan. He will also take the lead in capturing opportunities and strengthening collaboration with multiple bank channels.

Kaneko joined HSBC Japan in 2013 and was deputy head of global banking in Japan before being appointed as CEO of AMJP in March 2020.

Over the past four years, Kaneko has led the growth of the firm’s asset management business in Japan, successfully leveraging our international connectivity to support both intermediary and institutional clients to capture global investment opportunities and driving the execution of our strategy to become a leading core investments solutions provider.

Kaneko will continue to be based in Japan. His reporting line remains unchanged – locally, he will continue to report to Edward Weeks, president and CEO, HSBC Japan, and functionally to Daisy Ho, CEO of Asia-Pacific, HSBC Asset Management.
