The sale marks Nomura’s first investment in the Grade A office sector in the Asia-Pacific region.

According to Nomura, the demand for leasing Grade A office buildings has increased due to the scarcity of supply. Besides, Japanese investors are increasing investment in Ho Chi Minh City, thus, acquiring Sun Wah Tower will contribute to meet the increasing demand.

Nomura also expressed ambitions to expand its presence in Asia by 2025. Some of the target markets are Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok, and Manila.
