Dear all,

Nomura Asset Management (NAM) celebrated its 60th anniversary on December 1, 2019.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to all our clients both in Japan and overseas for investing in our strategies.

NAM was established on December 1, 1959 as Nomura Securities Investment Trust Management Co., Ltd. On October 1, 1997, NAM merged with Nomura Investment Management Co., Ltd., which was established in January 1981.

Inspired by the words of Nomura's founder's principles of "Staying one step ahead", over the past 60 years, NAM has contributed to the development of asset management in Japan, and took on as a challenger in the global market to explore business opportunities in a variety of countries and regions. As a result, we have been able to accumulate a total of ¥54 trillion in assets under management globally.

Upon celebrating our 60th anniversary, again, we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all our clients and our stakeholders for the continued support. In line with our corporate slogan, "Expertise to Exceed," we endeavor to ensure sustainable growth and to establish a foundation to deliver trust and reliability by providing exceptional value to our clients.

December 2019

Nomura Asset Management Co., Ltd.
Junko Nakagawa
President & CEO
