Nomura Holdings Inc, Japan's biggest brokerage and investment bank, on Friday reported a 66% drop in first-quarter net profit due to a slowdown in the trading business and a previously flagged loss from the Archegos debacle. April-June profit came in at 48.5 billion yen ($442.76 million) versus 142.5 billion yen a year earlier, when buoyant U.S. trading revenue drove the bank to its best quarterly earnings in almost two decades.
