Credit Suisse Securities (Japan) Limited: Best Investment Research Team Japan 2020


The relationship between subsidiaries and parent companies allows for a sharing of resources, responsibilities and rewards. Over the past 160 years, Credit Suisse has earned a reputation as one of the world’s leading financial institutions. This is in large part due to the strength of its global network — and Credit Suisse Securities (Japan) Limited is an integral member of that team. Credit Suisse Securities pulls from a 61-year legacy of local expertise and innovation in the country’s financial markets, starting with the honour of sole underwriter of Japan’s first post-war foreign bond. The company has developed a suite of services, running the gamut of stocks and bonds, corporate advisory and private banking, financing and alternatives. Clients can seek investment advice at branches in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya, or chart their own investment strategies utilising the comprehensive research material that the company publishes on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis. The group established an in-house think tank to provide an overview of long-term economic development and the research team at Credit Suisse Securities plays a crucial role in the analysis of local market data. The judging panel has recognised the company’s contributions to investor self-education in past award programmes, specifically relating to AI-enhanced and data-driven research results. As the digital revolution surges forward, Credit Suisse Securities continues to harness advances that help clients shepherd their investments wisely — whatever the market conditions. The judges declare Credit Suisse Securities (Japan) Limited as the 2020 winner of the award Best Investment Research Team (Japan).
