Nomura names Vikas Sharma head of Asia

07 March, 2017

Japan-based Nomura’s India head Vikas Sharma will take over as head of Asia, excluding Japan, from April 2017, it said in a statement.

Sharma relocated to Mumbai from Japan in 2007 to build the firm’s India business after starting with Nomura in 1999 as a telecom analyst in Hong Kong.

Sharma—who is an alumnus of Manipal Institute of Technology and holds an MBA from Asian Institute of Management, Manila—has over two decades of experience in banking, IT services and consulting. He covered the technology, media and telecom (TMT) sector across Asia as an investment banker, before being appointed as head of Nomura’s investment banking operations in India.

Sharma will take over from Toshiyasu Iiyama, the company said.

The firm has also named Rig Karkhanis as head of global markets, Asia excluding Japan and chairperson of global emerging markets executive committee.

Kharkhanis will oversee Nomura’s global markets business in Singapore and macro business across Asia, excluding Japan, the firm said.
