In 1996-1997 he hosted the first US seminars on AI aimed specifically at Japanese investors and, in spring, 1998, the first such Japanese-sponsored seminar in Japan. He created the first US and offshore limited partnerships to be funded with Japanese public pension funds and the first offshore unit trusts to be organized by Japanese insurers. His firm regularly assists Japanese institutions with fund set-up and new product design, manager selection, due diligence and international tax and legal compliance, and also consults to hedge fund and private equity fund managers seeking to maximize their penetration into Japan. Most recently the firm has been involved with the Japanese government and private sector efforts to introduce US ERISA-style practices aimed at enhancing the investment returns of Japan's pension funds.
