The bank has named Tokihiko Shimizu, a former welfare ministry bureaucrat who led the Government Pension Investment Fund's (GPIF) drive to diversify its allocation of money into alternative assets including private equity and property, as head of the new operation.

The new Private Equity Investment Department will be set up on Dec 1, the statement said.
