Jury Finds Nomura Trader Guilty of Conspiracy

June 15, 2017 Aly J. Yale

A former executive at Nomura, a financial holding company based in Japan, was found guilty of conspiracy on Thursday by a Connecticut jury. The defendant, Michael Gramins, allegedly added secret commission fees onto mortgage-backed security transactions he handled between 2009 and 2013, according to the verdict. Gramins wasn’t the only party involved—though he was the single person charged. The state’s case also named Nomura’s Ross Shapiro and Tyler Peters in the suit, which alleges the three defendants illegally added to their profit margins when handling RMBS transactions for their employer.
