Nomura Hires Lasser to Head Americas Private Capital Markets

July 1 (Bloomberg) -- Nomura Holdings Inc., Japan’s largest brokerage, said it hired Alexis Lasser from Standard Chartered Bank as head of private capital markets in the Americas.

Lasser will report to Glenn Schiffman, head of investment banking for the Americas, and global finance head Philippe Dufournier, the Tokyo-based company said in the statement.

Lasser was head of the illiquid and private placements group at Standard Chartered. Prior to that, she worked at Lehman Brothers on the private capital markets team, Nomura said.

Nomura, Japan’s largest brokerage, is hiring as many as 35 bankers in the U.S. this year, Schiffman said in an interview last month. The firm plans to have about 100 bankers in the U.S. by the end of 2010, from about 65 last month, in a push to become a global securities firm that rivals Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Credit Suisse Group AG.
