*CIO: Chief Investment Office

Mid-to-long term Asset Allocation ~SAA (Strategic Asset Allocation) ~

We build asset allocation with high investment efficiency over a five year time horizon. The features of our CIO Services are ①improvement of investment efficiency by diversifying in broad asset classes, ②benefit from global growth emphasizing on allocation for overseas, and ③income gain oriented focusing on credit investment. SAA defines eleven asset classes and diversifies into these various asset classes.

Tactical Asset Allocation ~TAA~

We provide a view of overweighing / underweighting on each asset class for the next six to twelve months. Deviating from SAA intentionally, we aim to gain any excess return.

Gathering the investment view on each asset class, we provide our insight and content to CIO Monthly and CIO NEWS, which Nomura Securities publishes.

Fund Selection

Based on the result of our unique and original fund evaluation, we select qualified funds with the highest expectation of excess return for each asset class, and provide the information on how to combine these funds.
