Omise Holdings, Southeast Asia’s leading financial technology service provider today announced it has received an undisclosed amount of funding from Nomura Holdings. 

Omise Holdings is the parent company of Omise (Payment Gateway), OmiseGO and GO.Exchange. This strategic round of funding will be used towards the expansion of Omise Holdings’ subsidiaries as they continue to scale their operations across various jurisdictions in the areas of payments, blockchain technology and digital assets exchange industries. 

“The fact that a key player in the regulated finance world is embracing the financial services, open infrastructure and disruptive technology we’re developing is an extremely positive indication for us. The speed of blockchain regulation, policy and compliance continue to impact our industry, but we can’t allow that to stifle our growth. As I’ve said before, in expanding our operations, we’re seeking jurisdictions with stable and transparent regulatory frameworks and forward-thinking governments,” said Jun Hasegawa, Group CEO, Omise Holdings. 

Nomura is one of the few companies working on digital asset custody and have since begun to explore blockchain technology. The Asia-headquartered financial services group has a global network spanning over 30 countries. As an integrated financial group, Nomura offers a variety of financial services and advisory solutions both to institutional and individual clients. 

Omise Holdings is leading the charge of the next wave of financial innovation. The company recognizes the opportunities its financial ecosystem brings to the market and is laying the foundation for its growth. The company also sees the rapid growth of the asset tokenization market and is ready to support businesses seeking to enter this industry. The open financial infrastructure and exchange services their companies offer can lead to a more inclusive financial system that the world needs.
