Former MUFJ Morgan Analyst Launches Japanese Investment Company

Sept. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Yukinori Oishi, Japan’s No. 2-ranked analyst for small companies last year, is starting an asset management business that bets on Japan’s small- and mid-cap growth stocks.

Indigo Blue Asset Management registered its business with the nation’s Kanto regional bureau of the Ministry of Finance, according to Oishi, formerly of Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities Co. The company aims to increase its assets under management to 3 billion yen ($39 million) in the first year and 10 billion yen by the following year, he said. Oishi was Japan’s second-ranked small company stocks analyst in 2010 by Institutional Investor magazine.

“We’re aiming positive return through active investment in small- and mid-cap growth stocks,” said Oishi in an interview today.

The asset management company, established on July 1, is a subsidiary of Indigo Blue Co., a management consulting and human resource development company. Oishi said he left Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley, the brokerage unit of Japan’s biggest lender, in June. A spokesman for Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley, who would not give his name, declined to comment.
