JPMorgan Chase & Co. will name Hisashi Moriyama as head of Japan equity research, replacing Jesper Koll.
Moriyama, who has worked at the investment bank since 2002, will also continue to cover the electronics, precision and industrial industry as a senior analyst, according to a document obtained by Bloomberg. Yukako Yoshino, a spokeswoman for JPMorgan in Tokyo, confirmed its contents.
Koll resigned at the end of March to pursue a “new career opportunity,” he wrote in an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg. He had run the equity-research team for more than five years.
