Hidehiro Imatsu Appointed President of Goldman Sachs Japan


goldGoldman Sachs has appointed Hidehiro Imatsu as president of its Japan unit. Imatsu, currently based in Hong Kong, will relocate to Tokyo to assume his new role while also retaining his current positions as co-head of global interest rates product trading and co-head of the Asia Pacific fixed income, currency, and commodities.

Imatsu succeeds Masanori Mochida, who announced his retirement last year after a distinguished 38-year tenure with the investment bank. Mochida is widely recognized for spearheading Goldman Sachs' expansion efforts in Japan over the past five decades.
Investor sentiment towards Japanese firms is on the rise, fueled by anticipated corporate governance reforms and robust profit growth, which have propelled the Nikkei share average to historic highs.

Goldman Sachs reaffirmed its commitment to delivering exceptional service to clients amidst this evolving landscape, citing the leadership transition as an opportunity to meet the needs of international investors eyeing Japan's market and support the global expansion aspirations of the country's largest corporations.
