Nomura Asset Management is a global investment manager with a single objective worldwide: to deliver consistently above average investment performance whilst providing an excellent service to its clients. To this end, we manage our portfolios actively, using a value-orientated investment philosophy, underpinned by dedicating significant resources to fundamental research.
What makes us different from other investment managers is not what we do, but how we do it. Like everyone else, we can see the big picture - but what we don't do is rely upon it.
We look beyond the consensus view, carrying out our own extensive research and refusing to accept things at face value.
The way we see it, the difference between success and failure is often the ability to spot something that others might overlook, identifying and capturing small opportunities. By keeping a close, constant watch on all the markets in which we operate - backed by stringent analysis and research - we can exploit these opportunities to the full, at the same time ensuring we do even the simplest things well and with consistency.
