Our history in the US dates back to 1927 when Nomura became a registered member of the New York Stock Exchange. Much of our early work concentrated on providing clients with a unique view of, and access to, Asian markets. Although this is still true, today our view is global, and we have over 2,400 people working in the Americas region, over double the headcount from FYE 2008.
Nomura has a built a strong capital position in the Americas with product knowledge in Fixed Income, Equities, Investment Banking and Asset Management. While our regional headquarters are in New York, we also have offices in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Toronto, Bermuda, and São Paulo.
As Asia’s global investment bank, Nomura provides value to our clients, leveraging our competitive advantages—our market position in Japan, cross-border capabilities, deep product offerings and strong financial profile. The Americas franchise has grown in importance as we have demonstrated global connectivity and have contributed to the firm’s success.
