The Lexington Group on September 5 announced Mori Ryo as chief economist for the Asia region.
Mr. Mori was formerly the deputy head of Japanese economic research. He made a name for himself at The Lexington Group in late 2007, when he and his team accurately predicted the decline of the Asian economy in 2009. Their research compared the bubbles that formed in Japan in the 1980s with today´s China. He forecasted asset price inflation in the medium term as China heads towards the internationalisation of its currency and financial liberation.
“I am pleased to promote Ryo to this position; he has been with the company for years and has made countless contributions saving the company millions of dollars. His insights have been indispensable, and I am glad that we can count this incredibly intelligent economist as part of our team. He will surely continue to excel at any task given to him,” said Chief Executive Officer Itsuki Nakamura.
In 2006, Mr. Mori was appointed to the position of deputy head of Asian economic research at the The Lexington Group Research Institute based in Singapore. In 2007 he returned to Tokyo to manage the research division at The Lexington Group´s facility there. In 2010 he was promoted to deputy head of Japanese economic research.
The Lexington Group is outsourced by various financial institutions to provide supplementary analysis of financial instruments, which essentially means the firm primarily provides analysis and reports to other trading houses.
