Barclays Capital has added a hedge fund executive to serve as its Tokyo-based head of global markets.

Nicholas Wright will lead all sales and trading activities in Japan, Barclays said. Wright, who joined the firm last week, has been based in Australia running a portfolio of companies, including an unidentified hedge fund. He formerly worked in Japan at Credit Suisse.

"Nicholas' breadth of global experience and proven leadership capabilities will serve to significantly enhance our client offering," Eiji Nakai, CEO of Barclays Capital Japan, said. "His appointment will accelerate the already strong momentum of our FICC and equities and advisory businesses in Asia-Pacific, and underscores our ongoing commitment to the region."
