London-based Millennium Global Investments is getting a bit more global and has opened an office in Tokyo.
Millennium, which last week added investing legends Jacob Rothschild and Ronald Cohen as minority stakeholders, set up the Tokyo office in May. The firm has applied for a license from Japan’s Financial Supervisory Authority to distribute its products, and may develop products specifically for the Japanese market in the future.
“There has been a huge demand for currency products in the last couple of years with the renaissance of the Japanese economy and there is renewed confidence among investors,” Mark Astley, Millennium’s CEO, told Financial News.
