MR TADAO TSUBATA (Non-Executive Director)
From 1991 to 1997, Tadao Tsubata worked in corporate finance at a major Japanese securities company where he was involved in the initial public offering of an investment trust. From this role he moved to a major international life insurance and investment company where he was involved in retail offerings and distribution of the business in Japan.
Establishing his first business in life insurance distribution and agencies in 2001, this formed the basis of a new business being a Japanese focused asset management company which acquired the individual underlying agencies and was incorporated as a public company in 2002. Tadao remains the Chief Executive Officer of the business.
In early 2010 the asset management activities grew in prominence and a number of private investment funds were formed to specifically target investments internationally, in mining, exploration (particularly gold), primary production and other growth industries. Tadao continues in the role of Chief Executive Officer of this business with operations in many countries including Australia. He is actively involved in the various international companies through his management team.
Tadao holds a BA in Economics from the Kokushikan University, Tokyo.
