The new cross-divisional internal company named Content Company is scheduled to launch on July 1, 2020.

Nomura Holdings Inc (TYO:8604) today announced its plans to establish a new cross-divisional internal company named Content Company, which is poised to launch on July 1, 2020.

Nomura explains that it is working to expand the scope of its business from public to private side services. As an important step towards this, Nomura will bring together content from across the Group and relevant people to form the dedicated internal Content Company. This move is expected to enable the firm to improve content quality to provide more sophisticated proposals, and by making use of digital technologies, provide customized services and solutions to its clients.

Nomura will also enhance private side research for unlisted companies and other financial assets, and continue to offer proposals for society.

Since its founding, Nomura has been keenly focused on research and analysis, leveraging results internally as well as making them available to the public. Nomura has also been proactive in making proposals for the financial and capital markets and society.

Recent advances in technology allow for anyone to readily obtain a large amount of information. However, the value of publicly available information can be enhanced with analysis, Nomura says. The company notes that its research, the wide range of data it has gathered internally and other tangible and intangible content are critical assets to its future growth.
