Japan Equity Strategist, Nomura
Yunosuke Ikeda is Nomura’s chief equity strategist and heads up the Macro Strategy Group of Nomura’s Market Strategy Department in Japan. He has specialized in research from a macroeconomic perspective on Japan's economy, global FX markets, and equity markets since 1995, when he joined Nomura Research Institute.
In his prior role as chief FX strategist, Yunosuke enhanced quantitative FX analyses, by developing the Nomura Yen Supply-Demand Index, a comprehensive metric to assess Japan-oriented money flows. He strives to predict the next market themes that are hard to forecast from data alone, by leveraging ties with global investors cultivated during his five years working in London.
Yunosuke graduated from the University of Tokyo with a bachelor's degree in Economics in 1995. He gained an MBA from the University of Rochester’s Simon Business School in 2003.
