Nikko Cordial Securities Inc is planning to set up a subsidiary in London before the end of next September, its first base there since withdrawing from the market in 1998, The Nikkei has reported.
The brokerage had operated under the group umbrella of Citigroup Inc (8710.TO) until last September. Since its acquisition by Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc (SMFG) (8316.TO) on October 1, Nikko Cordial has maintained ties with Citigroup in some overseas operations.
The new unit will serve as a major centre for overseas wholesale operations, such as underwriting Euroyen bonds issued by Japanese companies.
Nikko Cordial, which has established a preparatory office on Monday, will also explore the possibility of eventually having the London unit partner with parent Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation.
