-Asia/West bridge

-Acquired Greentech so strong focus on renewables

-Smaller team so exposed to models very early on, but still has capacity of large/balance sheet bank

Everyone is shitting on Nomura but it's a decent bank. Some of their teams have great deal flow (Greentech, Infra, Consumer, levfin)… These teams place very well in BB/EB or other funds. Talking about the EMEA btw
