Tokyo, Japan (PressExposure) October 14, 2013 -- TCL Associates announces the hiring of three Americans; Howard Richardson, Hugh Griffin, and Graham Meyers. The new hires will be based in Tokyo, but will focus on different sectors and indices in the United States. The new hires will be effective Monday September 16th.
