Nomura enters asset management business alliance

Posted by Anton Murray Consulting on 23 Jul, 2015

Nomura has announced that it has signed an agreement with Japan Post Bank, Japan Post, and Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, to establish a new asset management company and develop asset management products.

Nomura will take a 20% stake in the new company, while Japan Post Bank will take a 45% stake, Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank a 30% stake, and Japan Post a 5% stake. The new company is due to be established with capital of 500 million yen. Japan Post Bank and Japan Post will appoint the President and Vice President. Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank and Nomura will both appoint one director each.

The new company is expected to apply for registration as a financial instruments business between October 2015 and January 2016. It plans to start distributing investment trusts through Japan Post Bank and Japan Post in February 2016.

Nomura and Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank will provide the new company with expertise in the area of asset management. The new company will develop easy-to-understand investment trust products that meet the needs of retail investors in the nationwide networks of Japan Post Bank and Japan Post, supporting stable asset formation over the long term and contributing to the shift from savings to investment in Japan.

This latest business alliance will further enhance Nomura’s asset management business in Japan, which is organized around Nomura Asset Management, Japan’s largest asset management firm. Currently, Nomura does not expect the business alliance to have a material impact on its consolidated results, but will make a timely disclosure if a material impact occurs.
