Posted on 08/30/2020
Daiwa Securities Group Inc. is moving forward on a majority-owned joint venture in China that will provide brokerage and securities underwriting services in mainland China. This is after Daiwa got regulatory approval from the China Securities Regulatory Commission. Beijing State-Owned Capital is an investment vehicle of Beijing municipal government will own 33% of the Daiwa joint venture, while an investment arm of Beijing’s Xicheng District holds 16%. Daiwa Securities sent in an application to form the joint venture in September 2019.
In 2014, Daiwa Securities exited mainland China when it owned a 33% joint venture wit a Chinese partner, after not being able to get a reasonable amount of market share.
