Nomura Q2 net profit falls 15% on bond trading drop
[TOKYO] Nomura Holdings on Monday said its second-quarter net profit fell 15 per cent, as its wholesale division was hit by a drop in fixed income trading.
Japan's biggest brokerage and investment banking group said in a statement that its July-September net profit fell to 51.9 billion yen (S$623.58 million), from 61.2 billion yen a year ago.
That was below an average estimate of 60.5 billion yen from two analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.
