Tokyo, September 13, 2021 - NRI, a leading provider of consulting services and system solutions, announced that it has been ranked #10 in the top 100 global financial firms as determined by analyst firm IDC in their annual IDC Financial Insights Fintech Rankings.

NRI offers a wide spectrum of technology solutions for financial firms in asset management and capital markets across the globe, from back to front office needs, as well as industry leading research and consulting services for some of the world’s most prominent institutions.

NRI has continued many major initiatives in the past year, particularly as it works to guide its customers and partners through an incredibly volatile market during the COVID-19 pandemic. In Partnership with Refinitiv, NRI successfully launched its joint solution at Baird, implementing it’s I-STAR GX solution alongside Refinitiv’s BETA platform.

NRI has also continued significant growth in the Australia market. In 2020, NRI signed to acquire 100% of the shares of the Australian Investment Exchange, and the acquisition was completed in May 2021.
