Japanese investment bank Nomura opts for new location in Financial Centre Frankfurt

Another Japanese bank has applied for a banking license in Germany and chosen to base the new business unit in the Financial Centre Frankfurt. Frankfurt Main Finance (FMF) is delighted that with Nomura another Japanese bank has officially decided to come to Frankfurt. “The Japanese banks were precisely the ones, who warned early on about the consequences of Brexit, and now are among the first to decide,” says Hubertus Väth, Managing Director of the Financial Centre initiative Frankfurt Main Finance.

“We would like to thank Nomura for their trust in the Financial Centre Frankfurt and look forward to welcoming our new colleagues. Nomura is already a member of Frankfurt Main Finance. We expect their announcement to act as a signal, and that further decisions by other prominent institutes will follow in the coming weeks.”

Just a few days ago, the Japanese Daiwa Securities Group announced their decision for the Financial Centre Frankfurt.
