KUALA LUMPUR: Asia-based global investment bank Nomura has appointed Choong Wai Kee as head of equity research for Malaysia as part of its drive to build up its cash equities business in South east Asia.

Nomura said on Aug 13 Choong joins Nomura from Citigroup, where he was head of Malaysia research leading a team that repeatedly topped the rankings in the annual Institutional Investor survey. Prior to that, he was head of Malaysia research for BNP Paribas Peregrine.

Nomura head of Equity Research for South east Asia, Lim Jit Soon said Choong's extensive knowledge of the Malaysia market gained over the past 16 years would add tremendous
value to our clients.

Joining Choong are Julian Chua and Ken Arief Wong, to further extend Nomura’s strong research capabilities. This team will also be supported by regional analysts based out of Singapore and Hong Kong. Choong will report to Lim.

Choong’s new team will focus on overall Malaysia market strategy and key sectors of the market, such as gaming, financials and PLANTATION [ PLANTATION  5,896.180  67.680 (1.161%) ]s

Nomura Securities Malaysia launched its onshore cash equities business in Malaysia last month after obtaining the special scheme stock broking license from the Securities Commission.

Nomura is currently number one in terms of Pan-Asia research coverage, with over 1,150 stocks under its coverage across Asia-Pacific in combination with the equity research
team in Japan.

The head of Equities for Asia-Pacific at Nomura, Siggi Thorkelsson said the appointment of this new team had further expanded its strong Asia-Pacific research franchise, and is testament to Nomura’s continued investment in research as part of its strategy to become the top equity house in Asia.

Nomura is actively building out its Equities business globally and has been gaining market share across all major exchanges. In Asia, its cash equity average daily trades have doubled in the first six months of the year.

Globally, Nomura is ranked number one overall on the London Stock Exchange in terms of volume and value of shares traded monthly, which represents a tremendous progress against its 82nd position in December 2008.
