Nomura Holdings, Inc. today announced plans to reorganize its Future Innovation Company into a new digital company, effective April 1, 2022.
“This is an important next step in our digital evolution,” said Kentaro Okuda, President and CEO of Nomura Group. “Digital technology is a critical part of our strategic drive to expand our operations into private markets. The new digital enterprise will lead to closer collaboration between internal and external stakeholders, accelerate our adoption of digital technologies and improve our customer services. »
Since its establishment in April 2019 with the aim of co-creating the best services and an ideal future with its customers, the Future Innovation Company has focused on the planning and development of digital services, supporting Nomura’s digital transformation and exploring new business opportunities.
Nomura plans to strengthen digital collaboration among group companies, including its international operations, while strengthening initiatives in priority areas by building on the work carried out by the Future Innovation Company. By establishing a new organization with a strategic mission, Nomura aims to drive business development and global collaboration.
Digital assets such as cryptocurrencies, security tokens and non-fungible tokens are increasingly present as a new asset class. The fusion of innovations from distributed ledger technology with traditional finance gives rise to a new range of services. By leveraging this, Nomura aims to grow its business in private markets and expand its services in priority areas such as sustainability and decarbonization.
Nomura will continue to contribute to the creation of a truly prosperous society by leveraging advanced digital technologies centered on digital business to provide its clients with new investment opportunities and added value.
