Our global capital markets expertise, coupled with our deep roots in Asia, have propelled us to become one of the ‘‘go-to’’ financial institutions in Japan, fulfilling the complex financial needs of our clients across all phases of their development.
We have been a leading Japanese-headquartered comprehensive financial institution since August 2009. According to the CIC Report, we are in the top ten independent investment firms in Asia as measured by both the number and the aggregate offering size of Japan and U.S. IPOs completed in each of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019, and one of the largest independent asset management firms in Asia in serving both regional and overseas clientele as measured by AUM as of March 31, 2019.
We are one of the few financial institutions that are majority-owned and managed by local Japanese entrepreneurs and professionals with extensive knowledge and experience across the Globe, and this genuine ‘‘Japanese-owned’’ identity positions us to play an instrumental role in connecting with both local clients from Japan as well as overseas within the global capital markets.
Compared to other global and Asian market players in Japan, we believe that we benefit from greater execution efficiency, local market and industry know-how, and unparalleled access to the sizable capital of Japanese tycoon families.
Our global capital markets expertise, coupled with deep roots in Asia, have propelled us to become one of the ‘‘go-to’’ financial institutions in Japan, fulfilling the complex financial needs of our clients across all phases of their development. Our clientele includes PRC banks, privately-owned companies primarily in new economy sectors, and Japanese-based blue-chip conglomerates, among others.
We are licensed to provide underwriting services for equity and debt offerings in Japan. Our underwriting capabilities have accelerated rapidly since October 2010. From the inception of our investment banking business in October 2015 to March 2019, we completed 36 equity offerings in Japan and the United States as an underwriter or financial advisor, with an aggregate transaction value of US$20.0 billion, including through the exercise of over-allotment options. During the same period, we also completed 87 debt offerings, with an aggregate transaction value of US$35.5 billion.
We have quickly built up a solid track record and established our market position and brand recognition for Asian-based issuers in Japan, the United States, and the other international capital markets. According to the CIC Report, we ranked high among all independent investment banking firms in Asia as measured by both the number and the aggregate offering size of Japan and U.S. IPOs completed in each of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019, and ranked second and third as a book runner among all investment banking firms as measured by the number of Japanese IPOs priced in 2018 and in the first quarter of 2019, respectively.
