Tokio Marine Hires Ex-Goldman Director

Apr 20 2009 | 10:29am ET

Tokio Marine Asset Management, a Japanese and Asian equities and hedge fund specialist, has appointed Paul Butler as compliance manager.

In the newly-created post, Butler will assist the firm’s compliance officer in providing compliance advice and monitoring, working closely with the business units to identify risks and develop solutions to mitigate them.

Prior to joining Tokio Marine, Butler was at Goldman Sachs Asset Management for almost 10 years, most recently as senior executive director in the compliance team for the alternatives group.

“The current environment has led to investors putting an even greater emphasis on the proper management of risk,” said Yuichi Takayama, CEO of Tokio Marine. “We remain committed to providing our clients with the very best risk and compliance advice, and the appointment of a compliance manager of Paul's caliber will go some way to ensuring that.”
