Barclays Japan Hires Ex-BofA Merrill Banker Takeshi Shoji

Barclays Plc hired Takeshi Shoji, a former employee at Bank of America Corp.’s Merrill Lynch, as a director at its Japan investment banking unit.

Shoji joined Barclays Securities Japan Ltd. on June 30 and will cover the insurance sector in the financial institutions department, the London-based bank said in a statement today.

He was most recently a director for insurance-sector coverage at Merrill Lynch Japan Securities Co., according to the statement. Before that, Shoji worked for JPMorgan Chase & Co. in Japan, Barclays said.

Shoji’s experience will help Barclays serve clients seeking growth “through various types of deals including cross-border transactions,” Tetsuya Kawano, vice chairman and head of investment banking for Japan, said in the statement.
