Mizuho has been expanding its global operations. Earlier in November, Mizuho Securities Europe GmbH, the Frankfurt-based group subsidiary of Mizuho Securities Co., Ltd., established a branch in Madrid, and commenced operations.
To provide sustainable and stable financial services to clients in Europe, Mizuho established Mizuho Securities Europe in Frankfurt, which commenced operations in March 2019. As FinanceFeeds reported in December 2018, the Frankfurt-based business of Mizuho Securities was granted a MiFID investment services license by Germany’s financial regulator BaFin. The aim of the move was, inter alia, to secure smooth and uninterrupted continuation of trading activities with clients in case of a hard Brexit.
