AIG Global Investment Group has hired Stewart Homler as managing director of Alternative Investments Japan. In this position, Homler will oversee a wide range of alternative investment strategies for AIGGIG, focused on the Japanese market. He will be located in AIGGIG’s Tokyo office and report to Robert Thompson, senior managing director and head of global alternative investments, who is based in New York.

Homler previously served as head of the Asia Pacific private equity group at Deutsche Asset Management. Prior to Deutsche, he served as chief representative in Tokyo of PPM Asia Private Equity Group, a subsidiary of Prudential UK. 

“AIG has a long history in Japan and we believe that this is the right time to expand our activity in alternative investments,” said Thompson. “Stewart is well qualified to lead this effort, bringing with him 20 years of investment experience, of which the last 10 years have been spent working in Japan and South East Asia.”

AIGGIG manages more than US $687 billion in assets with products ranging from traditional equity and fixed income to multi-manager hedge funds and private equity.
