Nomura Holding America Inc. announced on Wednesday that it has completed the acquisition of boutique investment banking firm Greentech Capital, LLC.
Greentech specializes in supporting its clients across sustainable technology and infrastructure. The company is an investment bank that executes mergers, acquisitions, and capital raises.
Following the completion of the transaction, the United States investment banking firm has been rebranded to “Nomura Greentech” and integrated into the firm’s Global Investment Banking franchise.
Commenting on the acquisition, Mike Rintoul, Head of Americas Investment Banking, said in the statement: “We are excited to complete our acquisition of Greentech, which is the leading M&A advisor in clean energy and energy smart technologies.”
“Nomura remains committed to strengthening our investment banking capabilities globally and the establishment of Nomura Greentech represents a substantial addition to our domain expertise.

Nomura Greentech will maintain global presence
Although the company has been brought into the Nomura franchise, it will still maintain its global presence, the Japanese-headquartered company said, with Greentech having staff located in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Zurich, and Paris.
Jeff McDermott, founder and Managing Partner of Greentech, and Head of Nomura Greentech, added in the statement: “Nomura Greentech enables our global clients to accelerate their growth and profitability by capitalizing on the significant opportunities in sustainable technology and infrastructure.”
“We have a full suite of product capabilities across geographies to provide our clients with holistic solutions. I am delighted to lead this highly experienced team and to create even more value for our clients.”
Nomura first announced the acquisition of Greentech in December of last year. As the Asia-based company highlighted at the time, the transaction is expected to provide Nomura’s existing client base with increased access to deep domain expertise and relationships in these areas.
