Nippon Life Global Investors Singapore Limited

"Nippon Life Global Investors Singapore Limited" initiated its operation since April 2013, when Nissay Asset Management Corporation participated in the JV, previously named "Nissay Schroders Asset Management Asia Limited", and became the majority shareholder through an intra-group deal and the JV was renamed 'Nippon Life Global Investors Singapore Limited'.

The Nippon Life Group has been managing Asian equities in Singapore since 2001. The unique joint venture structure has allowed the company to quickly set up its operations, utilizing the partner's infrastructure and support functions such as IT and finance, and enhance its capabilities while cultivating its own investment culture, staff, process and decisions.

With the addition of the group's asset management arm, Nissay Asset Management Corporation, in the JV partnership in April 2013, the JV now aspires to expand its services beyond the group and further deepen its roots in Singapore.
