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.
