Makoto Haga, a hedge fund pioneer at two of Japan’s largest securities firms, died Friday at his home south of Tokyo. He was 46 years old.
The cause of death was a heart attack, according to online broker Monex Inc., where Haga served as chief strategist since joining the firm last year.
Haga was the first hedge fund manager at Nomura Holdings and at Sumitomo Trust & Banking. He joined the former in 1998 and the latter in 2001.
Haga left Sumitomo in 2008 to found Wing Asset Management.
