Nomura Plans Hundreds More U.S. Hires

Nomura Holdings reportedly aims to add 300 more employees in the U.S. by March, on top of the 300 additional staffers it has hired thus far in 2009.

That would boost U.S. headcount at Japan's largest investment bank to 1,200, or double where it stood at the start of this year. "We want to make sure that we have got sufficient business and people (in the U.S.) so that we can truly have a global offering for clients," a Nomura representative told the Financial Times.

The FT's story doesn't specify types of jobs the company is adding. A Nomura spokesman in the U.S. didn't immediately return a call from eFinancialCareers News.

The company raised $4.8 billion through an equity offering Monday.

Since acquiring bankrupt Lehman Brothers' Asian and European operations a year ago, Nomura has been steadily expanding its U.S. equity and fixed-income operations. It also reportedly hired Latin America economist and strategist Tony Volpon from Standard Chartered last month.

In September, Shigesuke Kashiwagi, chief executive of Nomura's Americas division, told Bloomberg News the bank planned to raise U.S. fixed-income headcount from 130 to 200 by March, with a focus on rates, credit, foreign exchange and securitized products. In July, the New York Fed approved Nomura Securities International as a primary dealer for U.S. Treasury securities.

    Any idea how they are taking resumes? The careers website has nothing. I tried calling and it just an automatic answering machine that diverts you back to the fax number

    It's safe to assume those two new hires are now hiring managers for U.S. fixed-income roles.
