By Edil Corneille
IHS Markit, a provider of critical information, analytics and expertise, announced that capital markets veteran Seiichiro Miyaoka has joined the firm as Managing Director and APAC Head of the Global Markets Group (GMG).
In this newly created Tokyo-based role, Miyaoka will collaborate with the GMG regional commercial and technology leadership teams to reinforce IHS Markit’s commitment as a value-added partner to capital markets. Miyaoka will also engage the firm’s APAC clients to drive scalable innovation and enhanced capabilities in the region.
With more than 30 years of capital markets expertise in APAC debt and equity markets, he brings robust knowledge of IHS Markit’s global buyside and sellside client base, driven by on-the-ground experience in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore and London. He joined IHS Markit from Mizuho Securities where he engaged in primary and secondary business.
Prior to his role at Mizuho Securities, Miyaoka served in roles at Nomura and UBS.
Commenting on the recruitment, Chris Sztam, Global Head of GMG said, “I’m thrilled to have Seiichiro join IHS Markit as we continue expanding our footprint across the APAC region. He will work closely with myself and other senior leaders to drive a growth strategy that provides an enhanced level of service to our clients.”
“We are simultaneously investing in best-in-class technology, products and talent to deliver clients greater value. With Seiichiro on board to lead our path forward in APAC, the team is well-positioned to broaden our impact in the new year and beyond,” concluded Sztam.
Throughout 2020, GMG is said to have strongly transformed to meet the rapidly-evolving needs of global financial institutions. These efforts include a variety of collaborative, operational and strategic moves that seamlessly position GMG capabilities within the broader set of offerings available from IHS Markit.
