The article reports that Rothschild Inc.'s announcement that it will partner with Nomura Securities Co. Ltd. on M&A deals could be a win for both players. Rothschild is a major player in European retail, and Nomura has advised on five of the 25 retail deals in Japan this year. Depending on the success of the venture, other Street and European investment banks may follow suit. So far, however, none has shown much interest, as success in the retail space has been difficult to come by. Also, smaller investment banks and other private equity firms have not shown much interest in the Japanese retail market because, some say it's unclear which direction that market will go from here.
