Japan's Leading Online Securities Company


SBI SECURITIES is a pioneer of the comprehensive online securities company in Japan, offering an innovative commission system, advanced trading tools, and a rich lineup of services. Strong investor support has made SBI SECURITIES the No.1 online securities company in the industry in terms of the number of accounts, customer assets and individual brokerage trading value.
The number of total securities accounts topped 2.6 million as of the end of March 2013, the largest in the online securities industry. We have been the No.1 company in the entire securities industry in terms of individual stock brokerage trading value, expanding our presence inside and outside the online securities industry. In domestic stock trading, we offer industry-leading economical fees, and through connection with the PTS (Proprietary Trading System) operated by SBI Japannext, we offer the SOR (smart order routing) service in which orders are executed by selecting the best market among the multiple options. As a result, we provide support to individual investors for efficient asset management in terms of both trading fees and contract prices. Trading and investment information is offered through a diversity of channels centered on the website, including the HYPER SBI real-time trading tool that enables investors to cover the gamut from gathering investment information to placing an order in addition to smartphone sites and apps.
In order to meet various investors’ needs, we are offering a rich lineup of services and commodities not just domestic stocks but also foreign stocks, investment trusts, foreign bonds and FX. In foreign stocks, we handle trading in nine countries: the U.S., China (Hong Kong), South Korea, Russia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia. In investment trusts, SBI SECURITIES leads the major Internet securities companies with 1,312 funds offered (as of May 8, 2013), offering purchases by money, by lot, and through a monthly accrual plan available for amounts starting at 500 yen per month. We are expanding corporate businesses such as investment banking in order to build a stable profit-making structure backed by an overwhelming share in the retail sector.
While stock markets undergo structural change, the key player is the individual investor taking advantage of online trading. An attractive investment environment in which individual investors can safely participate is essential to a healthy stock market, which requires the participation of a large number of investors. SBI SECURITIES has succeeded in attracting a large number of individual investors to the stock market by offering real-time information, low cost services, and the ability to trade autonomously without solicitation.
At SBI SECURITIES, more than 75% of new accounts (84.3% inFY2012) are created by customers who have never invested in stocks. Going forward we will continue to respond flexibly to changes in the investment style of individual investors through measures such as expanding smartphone services and trading tool services as we constantly strive to provide services that suit the needs of customers. We would like to continue to actively support these investors to ensure they gain accurate knowledge and understanding of the stock market, and by raising the level of individual investors, contribute to the expansion of direct financial markets, and the further development of the Japanese economy.
Based on the customer-centric principle, SBI SECURITIES will create more convenient services for investors while continuing to provide the industry's lowest commission rate, extensive high-quality investor information, real-time trading tools, attractive investment opportunities (products), and a secure trading environment. We believe these efforts will contribute to the development of financial markets and the revitalization of the Japanese economy.
