Brexit is driving Japanese bank Norinchukin to Amsterdam
One of Japan’s biggest banks Norinchukin will move from London to Amsterdam. Similar to the move of the European Medicine Agency (EMA) to Amsterdam, this is a direct result of the Brexit plans of the United Kingdom.
The bank has decided to make this switch from the British capital to Amsterdam, because it wants to ensure continued access to the markets within the European Union. After all, an office in one EU country gives permission to be active in all EU countries.
Norinchukin is an investment bank with their headquarters in Tokyo. The bank invests in, among other things, shares, bonds, securities and real estate. In the Netherlands, Norinchukin will mainly be involved in financing of projects, initially with a team of thirty people, according to CEO Kazuto Oku. The new office in Amsterdam has now officially been announced by the company. The aim is to strengthen the bank’s business in Europe.
