The origin of Aizawa Asset Management was Tudor Capital Japan Limited, established in 1999.
Formerly the Japanese subsidiary of Tudor Investment Corporation, a major American hedge fund, it changed its name to Asuka Asset Management in July 2002 as a result of a management buyout by the founders who were co-managers of a proprietary account trading team at Salomon Smith Barney, Tokyo. Akebono was also derived from a company established by Asuka to dedicate to private investments, and has now rejoined Asuka.
