TORA beefs up Singapore presence
Trading technology provider TORA
is looking to expand its Southeast Asia footprint with the hiring of a new head
Momoko Itoh will be based out of
the firm’s Singapore office, reporting to Asia Pacific managing director Chris
As part of her bid to increase TORA’s customer base in
Singapore and the Southeast, Itoh will focus on TORA Compass, the provider’s
advanced execution and order management system for buy-side institutions.
She joins TORA from Goldman Sachs in Tokyo where she was for
more than 11 years, predominantly in Japan.
“Singapore is an important hedge fund centre in Asia for
onshore and offshore funds, including a significant number of Japanese offshore
funds. Momoko’s experience in Japan and her wealth of knowledge in fund
management will both benefit TORA’s client base and help drive the growth of the
company in the region,” says Jenkins.
