Euromoney FX survey 2010: Nomura: the one to watch?

The Japanese bank’s acquisition of former Lehman Brothers businesses has greatly enhanced its position in the FX market. Alexandra Fletcher reports.

This has been reflected in its dramatic leap in the 2010 FX Survey, from 57th to 18th position.

But this performance needs to be taken in context. In 2008, Lehman ranked 11th for market share in Europe and fourth for market share in Asia.

Lehman’s global head of FX, Richard Gladwin, joined Nomura in November 2008 and immediately began to build its FX business.
