Nomura Hires From Julius Baer In Wealth Management Push

The Tokyo-headquartered financial services group has boosted its wealth planning team with a senior appointment from its regional rival.

Japan's Nomura has hired Harry Ng from Julius Baer to head its trust business and wealth planning in Asia, excluding Japan.

Ng, based in Singapore, will assume the new role of head of Nomura Trust Company and head of wealth planning strategy and solutions, Asia excluding Japan. Reporting to the firm's head of wealth management in Asia, excluding Japan, Nobuhiro Sano, he will be responsible for managing Nomura Trust Company’s client relationships and estate administration activities, as well as leading the trustee services business.

“Wealth management continues to be one of Nomura’s key engines of growth. The addition of Harry to our team further demonstrates the firm’s commitment to our long-term growth strategy in wealth management,” said Sano.

Ng joins from his position as North Asia head of wealth planning at Julius Baer in Singapore. He was also Asia-Pacific wealth planning team head at Merrill Lynch’s wealth management unit in Singapore prior to the division’s acquisition by Julius Baer. 

“Harry is recognised for his extensive experience in the wealth planning space and has a stellar reputation with both clients and peers. He will be an invaluable asset to us as we continue to grow in Asia,” Sano added.
