Nomura Securities introduces new asset management app

Maria Nikolova

The solution, called OneStock, is currently available only on iOS-based gadgets.

Nomura Securities Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Nomura Holdings Inc (TYO:8604), today announced the launch of its new asset management application called OneStock. The app was created in collaboration with software company Money Forward, Inc.

The solution is initially available only on iOS but Nomura promises that an Android app will be available shortly. The app is only available in Japanese at present.

Regarding the rationale for launching the app, Nomura explains that, as people live longer, awareness of healthy life expectancy and the useful lifespan of assets is becoming increasingly important. To address clients’ concerns about building and managing their assets, the app aims to help them understand the future lifespan of their assets based on their income, expenses and current assets.

The app will also enable clients to easily see the assets they have at different financial institutions such as banks and securities companies, and manage them together. By understanding what assets they have, clients will be better able to consider strategies to extend the life of their assets. Nomura also plans to introduce more functions, including ones that allow clients to view assets such as health insurance and real estate.

In addition, the app will offer services such as monthly and yearly asset reports regarding overall assets and individual stock performance. Clients will also be able to access premium services for a fee.

Nomura is working to expand the scope of its business from public to private side services. Leveraging its expertise in face-to-face sales, the firm seeks to provide new value to clients by helping them build their assets.
