Daiwa Capital Markets has added a hedge fund manager to its Asia equity sales group.

Daiwa, which is focused on expanding from Japan into the rest of Asia, said that Alex Lewis had joined it from Marble Bar Asset Management. At Marble Bar, Lewis was chief investment officer of the Pan-Asia Fund.

Lewis, who joined Daiwa in January, has previous sell-side experience at ABN Amro and Lehman Brothers.

Daiwa also announced the hire of Lewis' new boss, Ali Khan, from Deutsche Bank.

"These are important hires for the firm as we look to build our Asian equity presence," Meurig Williams, regional head of equity for Europe and the Middle East, said. "Both have exceptional track records as Asian equity specialists and are an ideal fit for the team."
