Nomura Holdings

Nomura was spun off from the Osaka Nomura Bank (a predecessor of Resona) in 1925 and in the decades following World War II became the market leader as Japanese commercial banks were prevented from engaging in securities business. Nomura still retains its dominant position in Japan where it now competes with the securities arms of Japan's "megabanks" as well as international investment banks. Nomura has tried many times over the past 30 years to achieve a viable franchise overseas but was not successful. It made another attempt with the acquisition of parts of Lehman's businesses during the global financial crisis but poor returns led it to cut back overseas operations and consistent profitability at an adequate level remains elusive.
