Japanese Equities


Nomura Asset Management (NAM) has been managing active Japanese equities since 1981. We are a leading presence in the Japanese equity market with over $281bn in AUM and a 4.2% Japan equity market share.*

Japanese equities is the foundation of our business and we have one of the largest on-the-ground research teams, enabling deeper and wider market coverage. Significant progress in governance practices and shareholder engagement make corporate Japan an environment rich in opportunities for selective investors. Nomura can leverage these market reforms through active engagement:

  • Leading presence in the Japanese equity market – because of our scale, companies engage with us
  • Proprietary in-house analysis and ESG assessment, based on deep understanding of our home market
  • Active corporate engagement drives a virtuous circle – better governance and better returns

We aim to become a bridge connecting global investors seeking compelling opportunities at attractive valuations, and Japanese companies that are actively changing to attract global capital.
