SBI Liquidity Market

Market Provider Offering a High-Liquidity FX Trading Environment

SBI Liquidity Market

The enactment of the Act for Partial Revision of the Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Control Act in April 1998 opened the foreign exchange trading market to participation by individuals. Subsequently, with the amendment of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act in 2005, foreign exchange trading by individuals came to be recognized as “FX trading.” The FX market has grown rapidly as a result of competition in service offerings provided by market entrants from different industries, and today Japan is a global center for FX trading. As a result, the total amount of FX transactions in Japan in 2013 reached \4,300 trillion(*), a scale that has enormous impact on the global foreign exchange market.

SBI Liquidity Market was established in July 2008 to provide securities companies and other financial product traders with convenient market infrastructure that ensures liquidity in FX trading and great convenience. We have established a system that allows SBI SECURITIES, SBI Sumishin Net Bank and SBI FXTRADE to provide its customers with competitive FX trading conditions. For the security companies and FX trading companies outside the SBI Group, we provide market functions.

We strive to develop a market that offers both high transparency and competitiveness for the traders that participate in the market functions we provide and to contribute to the further development of the FX market as a whole by concentrating liquidity for these FX transactions and supplying the market with a strong flow of funds.

We will devote ourselves towards developing a low-cost, safe and secure FX trading environment available for all individual investors in Japan and overseas and further improving and expanding the market function that we provide.
