He will be based in Tokyo where he will lead sales and marketing for the bank’s hedge fund clients in Japan, and report to Kevin Meehan, head of prime services  in Asia.

Koga joins Credit Suisse from Morgan Stanley where he was most recently responsible for the marketing of their prime brokerage services in Japan. Prior to that, he worked at Yamaichi Securities in its Tokyo, London and Hong Kong offices.
