Nat res - hard working team, know a few people there.. Generally, Nomura has no M&A dealflow and no exits to the buyside...

Know some people who did an intern at nomura then went to bb

The above is simply not true.

From what I am hearing from my friends (and I have a few across the firm across different levels), their M&A business had one on the best years ever in 2020 despite COVID etc...some of the larger deals include advising Global Wafers on US$5.3bn bid for Siltronic, Ardian on acquisition of a EUR1.5bn stake in Inwit in Italy, Allianz on EUR5.0bn JV with Telefonica in Germany, etc.

On exit opps, indeed these are probably more sporadic, but just do a LinkedIn search and you will see people recently exiting to GIC, Triton, Nordic Capital, GS MBD, Temasek, Alpinvest, Oaktree, TDR Capital, etc.

Plus, some indeed decide to lateral to GS/JPM/BAML if they so choose.

Not all teams are equal, of course, and the new enlarged Energy, Infrastructure and Industrials team is one of the best (if not the best) team at Nomura at present with exceptional M&A dealflow on par with top firms on the street. Particularly, as it concerns the Utilities & Infrastructure verticals.

Look up league tables for past three years in European M&A and tell me how Nomura ranks...

Truth is best interns/analyst usually move to lower tier BB (UBS, DB etc) and no exits (apart from middle market in which Nomura has some limited activities)

Nomura has decent headcount adjusted dealflow, but memes are destroying their rep to some extent between new grads

Their NRG team does have smaller deals than other large platforms as expected but they keep exiting to other BBs and MMs

And what about the coming year with their acquisition of greentech which is a solid name in the field ?
