Tokyo - Nomura Holdings has announced that it has been selected as a component of the DJSI World Index and DJSI Asia Pacific Index. The Dow Jones Sustainability Indices ("DJSI") are the world's first global sustainability benchmarks.
This year, a total of 317 companies (including 20 Japanese companies) were selected among 2,500 world's largest companies for the DJSI World Index. Nomura is one of three Japanese financial companies selected in the DJSI World Index.
Nomura has also been a component of the FTSE4Good Index for 10 consecutive years since 2006. The index established by FTSE is wholly owned by London Stock Exchange Group.
