Mitsui & Co. Alternative Investments Ltd. started business under the name of “Japan Alternative Investment Co., Ltd.” in December 2001 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsui & Co., Ltd. (“Mitsui”) with the strong belief that alternative investments can be an important tool to contribute to the development of the asset management industry in Japan. Since then, we have continuously strived to best serve our clients by sourcing, developing and providing investment products and structured solutions that meet their needs as well as offering post-investment services.

In April 2017, we changed our corporate name to Mitsui & Co. Alternative Investments Ltd. to reflect our position as a core subsidiary in Mitsui’s asset management business that is expected to contribute more as the unique hub that connects the Mitsui & Co. Global Group with Japanese institutional investors.

In order to meet the diversifying needs of investors, we are committed to further enhancing our ability to identify unique products, develop a wider range of investment products and solutions, and offer customized service for investors, as well as leveraging the worldwide network of the Mitsui & Co. Global Group and providing or proposing a wider lineup of solutions in collaboration with other companies in the Mitsui & Co. Global Group. These high-level efforts are made to achieve the goal of becoming the leader in the alternative investments field.

In addition to our current product lineup, which includes hedge funds and private equity funds, we aim to provide investors with new funds/products related to real estate, infrastructure, and other real assets that are developed with Mitsui’s expertise in real business, real assets and its global business relations/network that it has accumulated as a leading trading company.

We will continue exerting our best efforts to be a company that constantly explores new territories, lives up to social expectations by recognizing our professional responsibilities, and contributes to the development of not only the alternative investments industry but the broader financial industry as well.
