JPMorgan Hires Ex-BNP Paribas Analyst Hiroshi Kamide in Japan

JPMorgan Chase & Co. said it hired Hiroshi Kamide from BNP Paribas SA as a senior analyst for the software and game industry in Japan.

Kamide joined JPMorgan Securities Japan Co. today, and he will start covering the area from November, the bank said in a statement e-mailed to Bloomberg News. The Tokyo-based unit hasn’t covered the software industry in Japan.

JPMorgan is among investment banks that are luring research talent from rivals to earn more commissions and fees from equity-related business in Japan. Kamide became at least the third recruit by the Japanese unit in the past three months.

JPMorgan in July hired Dairo Murata, a former Credit Suisse Group AG analyst, to cover the retail industry, and employed Masashi Itaya, also formerly of Credit Suisse, for the electronic-component sector in August.
