Auerbach Grayson & Company, a New York-based brokerage firm specialising in global trade execution and exclusive in-depth research for US institutional investors, announced on Tuesday that it has partnered with Okasan Securities Co,. Ltd., one of Japan’s strongest independent investment management and research firms, to provide US investors with greater access to Japanese market intelligence.
Beltone Financial Holding owns a 60% stake in Auerbach Grayson.
“Through its exclusive partnership with Okasan Securities, Auerbach Grayson will provide its institutional clients with increased on-the-ground research and coverage of investment opportunities in Japan,” the company said in a press release.
The partnership also allows Okasan Securities to expand its international business by providing Auerbach Grayson’s clients more than 500 of the largest US institutional investors, with bespoke research, corporate access, and seamless trade execution across a wide range of sectors and listed companies in the Japanese market.
“Our clients are showing greater demand for institutional quality and fundamental research on Japanese small- and mid-cap companies, a growing market opportunity that is difficult to access in the US,” said David Grayson, CEO and co-founder at Auerbach Grayson. “Our partnership with Okasan will fulfill that demand and provide American investors with a wider breadth of information on Japanese equities.”
Auerbach Grayson built its global network by establishing partnerships with local and regional brokers and banks in emerging, frontier, and developed markets worldwide, with analysts in every region. The firm provides US institutional investors with trade execution and in-depth local equity research from its local partners.
