New York – April 16, 2019 BTIG announced today that it has hired Shingo Yatsui as a Managing Director and Head of Cross-Border Mergers and Acquisitions within its Investment Banking division. Mr. Yatsui will be based in San Francisco and will spend significant time in the Asia Pacific region. In his new role, he will report into JT Herman, Managing Director and Head of Mergers and Acquisitions at BTIG.

Mr. Yatsui will lead BTIG’s emerging mergers and acquisitions business for Asia-based clients looking to identify transactions and other valuable opportunities in the U.S. and European market, and for U.S.-based clients looking to execute within Asia. “We are pleased to welcome Shingo to BTIG’s Mergers and Acquisitions team,” commented Scott Kovalik, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of BTIG. “Having focused almost exclusively on Asia M&A throughout his career, Shingo is the ideal fit to run international deal making.

Earlier in his career, he was Vice President of Investments and a member of the Technology, Media and Telecommunications team at ITX, a subsidiary of Sojitz Corporation.
