Credit Suisse is boosting its prime brokerage services business with the appointment of Yoji Koga as a managing director and head of prime services coverage in Japan. 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.

"Today's appointment reflects our significant commitment to the business in Japan,” said Meehan. “Mr. Koga brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record to Credit Suisse, which will serve to further strengthen our Prime Services effort in Japan."
