Asset Management

Nomura’s Asset Management Division, which is led by its core entity, Nomura Asset Management (NAM), employs approximately 1,400 professionals in 12 countries and regions around the world, including Japan. It focuses on delivering high-quality investment strategies, products and services not only to individual investors in their respective regions, but also to a wide range of investors, including pension funds and institutional investors. As an asset management firm practicing responsible investment, by accurately identifying the diverse investment needs of clients around the world, we aim to deliver not only superior investment returns, but to contribute to the growth and development of capital markets through stewardship activities, including dialogue with the companies in which we invest.

In addition to our traditional strength in Japanese and Asian equities, we offer alternative investment and other differentiated products, such as global high-yield bonds, absolute return funds, smart beta indexes and exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Our aim is to deliver consistent outperformance for our clients to help them meet their investment objectives.
