This article reports that Nomura Securities International Inc. has decided to play a big role in the U.S. middle market. Led by star banker Ethan Penner, Nomura made an extremely aggressive push into the U.S. commercial mortgage business in the mid-1990s, quickly establishing a dominant position in the sector. But the effort to maintain its growth trajectory led to riskier and riskier bets, eventually resulting in a spectacular collapse a few years later. Nomura faces some daunting challenges, not the least of which is that the U.S.-based boutiques are not standing still. A number are quickly becoming established advisers overseas. In the past 12 months Greenhill & Co. has advised on nearly a dozen sizable international mergers and acquisition transactions, though mostly involving companies based in the U.S. and Europe.
