Hong Kong, February 21, 2013 – Newedge, a global leader in multi-asset brokerage and clearing, announced today the appointment of Shin Shinozuka as the Head of Japan.

Shinozuka-san succeeded Yoshio Kuno as the Head of Japan, effective on February 18th 2013. He was previously the Head of Compliance for Newedge Japan.

In this new role, Shinozuka-san is responsible for providing local leadership in Japan, strategic development of business activities, and ensuring a safe and controlled operation in the country. Shinozuka-san reports directly to Laurent Cunin, Head of Asia-Pacific at Newedge.

Shinozuka-san has deep experience in operating the financial market of Japan, including management responsibilities and oversight of key areas such as risk and compliance for Newedge in Japan.

Commenting on Shinozuka-san’s appointment, Laurent Cunin said, “We are pleased to have Shinozuka-san as the Head of Japan. With his industry experience and proven track record in business management, Shinozuka-san will play a significant role to deliver operational efficiency and growth of Newedge’s business in Japan.”

Shinozuka-san joined Société Générale Securities North Pacific (SGSNP) as Manager for Futures Options Brokerage in 2000. He was at Director level with SGSNP when he moved to Newedge Japan as the Head of Compliance in 2008. Prior to SGSNP, Shinozuka-san had extensive experience with a number of major financial institutions, including Morgan Stanley, Schroders and Merrill Lynch. He obtained master degrees in Law and in Finance from Waseda University and Aoyama Gakuin University respectively.

Yoshio Kuno, Newedge’s former Head of Japan, is retiring and will leave the company by the end of March. “We thank Kuno-san for his contribution in Japan during the past two years especially the tragic earthquake that struck the country in March 2011,” added Laurent Cunin.
