It is a new position. Mr. Takai will support New York-based Axioma’s institutional clients in Japan and the broader Asia-Pacific region, a Hong Kong-based spokeswoman said. Axioma provides risk management and portfolio construction solutions.
Mr. Takai was a vice president and consultant at MSCI’s RiskMetrics in Tokyo, the spokeswoman said.
