Thomson Financial (TF) today announced a business alliance agreement between Nikko Investor Relations (NIR), a subsidiary of Nikko Securities, and Thomson Financial Investor Relations (TFIR), a division of TF. The alliance aims to provide Nikko Securities with international IR capabilities and TFIR with expanded access to the Japanese IR market. "We are pleased to align ourselves with an organization as prestigious as Nikko. The relationship will expand TFIR's IR business in the Japanese market and provide Nikko with a global IR capability for its clients," said Jay Nadler, CEO of TFIR. "We believe that targeting and valuation analysis, investor relations techniques widely used today in North America and Europe, will be valuable in Japan. Through this alliance we will be better able to introduce these services to Japanese corporations," Nadler continued.

We can now offer our clients a value-added investor relations program through the business alliance with TFIR."
