Aims to tap the growth of its China equity research franchise
Nomura has appointed its chief China economist, Mingchun Sun, as head of China equity research, a newly created role to tap the growth of its China equity research franchise. Mr. Sun joined Nomura as chief China economist in October 2008. Prior to that, he was senior China economist at Lehman Brothers.
Reportedly, in this expanded capacity, Mr. Sun will lead efforts to align and coordinate Nomura’s economic, strategic and sector research on the China market. He will work with analysts and research support teams in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Hua He, head of equity and fixed income research for Asia ex-Japan, Nomura, said: “Mr. Sun’s professional background and research experience makes him a natural leader for Nomura’s research effort on China. His often timely, yet standout calls have earned strong recognition among our Chinese clients and policy makers. He will play an instrumental role in enhancing our China research capabilities as part of Nomura’s strategy to build a top equity house in Asia-Pacific.”
