Toru Watanabe
President and Chief Executive Officer:
Toru Watanabe

Toru Watanabe believes in leading from the front. A graduate of Kobe University with a Master's Degree in Electronics specializing in semiconductor design, Toru started his career with NRI in 1991 in system administration and network management for securities back office operations. A transfer to NRI's London office saw his transition to the role of an Application System Architect where he got fully involved in designing, developing and implementing back office securities operations systems that were deployed in Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Paris, Zurich and London.

Toru's connection to Kolkata, India began in 1995 when he started working with IT talent from Kolkata. His conviction and confidence in the competence that he helped develop was key in starting up Anshin Software, Kolkata in 2001. Toru supervised the outsourcing of more than 5,000 person months of design, development, testing, implementation and support work from NRI to Anshin Software and saw it mature into a financial IT firm with 160 employees. Supported by the Indian software developers, he was able to deliver overall securities operation systems including sell side, buy side and custodian solutions to financial institutions in Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, London, New York and Tokyo.

After NRI acquired Anshin Software in 2012, Toru was the obvious choice to take over the leadership and subsequent growth of the newly christened NRI Financial Technologies India Pvt. Ltd. as President and CEO.

Having grown up in Kobe, Japan, Toru loves life in Kolkata and has begun to travel all over India. He is a keen golfer and can be seen on most weekends at the Royal Calcutta Golf Club, the world's oldest golf course outside the UK.
