The firm entered a three-year interest rate swap to convert the issuance from a fixed-rate note into a three-month yen LIBOR floater for the end investors, according to Alex Yang, head of securitization in Hong Kong.

On the back of the note issuance, Nomura enters the interest rate swap to convert the cash flows into floating.
