TOKYO -- Nomura Securities came in second for merger and acquisition advisory in Japan in the first half of this year, gaining on top-ranked Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities, as it cashed in on a period of active buyouts by Japanese companies.

The Nomura Holdings unit handled 54 M&A deals worth a combined 1.83 trillion yen ($17.2 billion), rising from the year-earlier fifth place, Refinitiv data shows. Nomura replaced Goldman Sachs, which fell to third place.
