Our efforts to diversify revenues and deliver consistent growth are starting to pay off. In the third quarter, we reported net revenue of 351 billion yen, up 10 percent from last quarter, and income before income taxes of 80.1 billion yen, a fourfold increase quarter on quarter.

The company faced challenges last year after seeing a fall of over 100 billion yen in net revenue in Q1 due to an unnamed US-based hedge fund client no longer being part of the balance sheet.



Investment Banking, however, registered yearly increase during the third quarter attributed to the growth in capital light businesses such as advisory and origination.

Kentaro Okuda added:

Investment Banking had its best quarter since the year ended March 2017 when comparisons became possible, driven by cross-border M&A deals, sustainable finance mandates and synergies with Nomura Greentech.

Investment Management saw continued global inflows across various channels, lifting assets under management to an all-time high. In Retail, we made progress toward a more stable revenue mix, as higher recurring revenue assets drove growth in recurring revenue underpinned by our continued focus on the total assets of our clients.

Nomura’s wholesale division saw a 202.7 billion yen in net revenue for the third quarter. Still down 9% YoY but it registered a quarter-over-quarter increase of 17%.
