Japan's financial watchdog orders Nomura to improve business after leak


TOKYO, May 28 (Reuters) - Japan's financial watchdog on Tuesday ordered Nomura Holdings 8604.T to improve its business practices after the brokerage admitted that an employee leaked market information.

The Financial Services Agency said it had issued one of its "business improvement orders" against Nomura. Japan's top brokerage on Friday confirmed that information related to listing and delisting criteria now under review by the Tokyo Stock Exchange had been handled improperly. It has said that its chief executive would take a 30% pay cut for three months.
