Stonepeak, a leading alternative investment firm specializing in infrastructure and real assets, announced that it has appointed Yuichi Jimbo as Chairman, Japan, effective as of July 1, 2024. Yuichi will be based in Tokyo and will help to support the execution of Stonepeak’s investment strategies in Japan in addition to the firm’s broader business in APAC.

Yuichi is an experienced leader in global financial services with significant expertise in infrastructure and renewables. He most recently worked at Bank of America, serving as Chairman of Investment Banking and Vice Chairman at BofA Securities Japan. Before joining Bank of America, he was Deputy President and Head of Investment Banking at Citigroup Global Markets Japan, where he also served on the Board of Directors and Management Committee. Previously, Yuichi was Deputy President and Head of Investment Banking of J.P. Morgan in Japan. Yuichi began his career with the Bank of Tokyo (currently MUFG Bank). He holds a Master of Science in Business Administration from the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a B.A. in Commerce from Hitotsubashi University.

Hajir Naghdy, Senior Managing Director and Head of Asia and the Middle East at Stonepeak, said, “Stonepeak is an active investor in Japan with investments across digital infrastructure and renewable energy generation and storage, and we continue to see significant opportunities in Japan to invest across these core areas of focus. We are excited to leverage Yuichi’s expertise in these sectors and the Japanese market more broadly to deliver differentiated investments and additional value for our partners. We believe his leadership ability, relationships, and experience will be highly additive to our established Asia Pacific team and we are thrilled to welcome him to the firm.”

Yuichi Jimbo, Chairman, Japan at Stonepeak, added, “I am delighted to join Stonepeak, a firm with an excellent reputation for risk-adjusted infrastructure investing and strong market position as the largest independent infrastructure manager globally. Stonepeak has demonstrated its thorough commitment to the region through its thoughtful investments, the recent close of its first dedicated Asia Infrastructure fund, and its continued addition of top-tier, regional expertise to the firm, and I am looking forward to being part of the Stonepeak team.”

Stonepeak has continued to strategically grow its presence in Japan and throughout the Asia Pacific region. Of note, in May of this year, Stonepeak and CHC, a leading battery energy storage system project development and electricity data management company, announced the creation of a platform focused on the development, construction, and operation of energy storage projects in Japan. Additionally, in March, the firm announced that it completed an investment in TerraWind Renewables, in partnership with Shizen Energy Inc., a Japanese renewable energy company. Certain of the firm’s portfolio companies headquartered elsewhere in APAC, including Digital Edge and Peak Energy, also have a meaningful presence in Japan. Including these investments, Stonepeak has more than 15 investments and partnerships1 supporting critical infrastructure needs in more than a dozen countries and territories across Asia Pacific.
