Japanese brokerage Nomura has inked a strategic partnership with investment and advisory firm Jarden Securities in Australia and New Zealand.
The alliance will offer a greater global reach, product expertise, and capital commitment for all their clients, according to the companies.
Under the partnership, both parties will bring together their complementary abilities to provide a full suite of services to clients across these regions.
Nomura will leverage its global network, and product capabilities to support Jarden clients across equity capital markets (ECM), debt capital markets (DCM), and acquisition and leverage finance (ALF).
The companies will maintain independent corporate advisory and capital markets businesses in Australia and New Zealand.
Nomura Australia head of investment banking Andrew Macgonigal said the alliance will further increase Nomura’s reach across both new and existing clients while supporting the buildout of Jarden in Australia.
Nomura Asia ex-Japan head of investment banking Kenji Teshima remarked that Australasia is an important market for the company.
Teshima added: “Jarden’s strength in ECM and its relationships with leading Australasian companies will be complementary to our business, which has traditionally been strong in cross-border transactions and debt financing.”
Jarden Australia CEO Robbie Vanderzeil added: “We’re delighted to have reached this agreement with Nomura. Beyond the opportunities that this alliance presents, we know that our two firms share a similar culture – being a trusted advisor and providing innovative client solutions. I look forward to working closely with the Nomura team.”
Last year, Nomura teamed up with Indonesian peer Verdhana to facilitate equities execution and research in the Southeast Asian nation.
Last month, the brokerage named Christopher Willcox as the new president and CEO of Nomura Securities International and Nomura Global Financial Products.
