Monex Inc structural changes

In addition to the personnel changes which will take place next month, Monex Inc will also be undergoing some structural changes. This will see the financial services firm split its accounting and finance department into two separate units, hence the personnel changes.

As Finance Magnates reported, Monex is planning on transforming its Japan segment, which includes its retail brokerage Monex Inc., from a brokerage model into an asset management model.

This change “aims to increase client assets after deducting commissions and management fees. Japan Catalyst, Inc. will drive the development of asset-management and asset-creation businesses,” the company’s third-quarter financial report said.

Towards the end of last month, Monex Group, Inc. agreed to make Monex-Saison-Vanguard Investment Partners a wholly-owned subsidiary of the group.
