SBI SECURITIES

Japan's Leading Online Securities Company

SBI SECURITIES

As a pioneer in the comprehensive online securities business in Japan, SBI SECURITIES has earned strong investor support and captured overwhelmingly high market share by offering an innovative commission system, advanced trading tools, and a full line of services. This has made SBI SECURITIES Japan's premier online securities company in terms of the number of accounts, customer assets, and individual brokerage trading value.

We have been the largest Japanese online securities company in terms of the number of total securities accounts, and also Japan's 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 the diverse needs of investors, we offer not only domestic stocks, but a wide range of products and services that include investment trusts, foreign stocks, futures and options trading, FX, and domestic and foreign bonds. SBI SECURITIES leads the major Japanese Internet securities companies in the number of investment trusts offered. We also offer a service that enables investors to purchase investment trusts on an installment basis by making payment by automatic withdrawal from a bank account. We offer foreign stocks from nine countries: the U.S., China (Hong Kong), South Korea, Russia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia. At the same time, to develop a stable earnings structure, we are building on our overwhelming market share in the retail sector and working to expand our corporate business operations , such as investment banking. Our IPO underwriting participation rate in 2013 was 81.5%, highest in the industry.

While stock markets undergo structural change, the key player is the individual investor who takes 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. In addition, we are actively promoting the Nippon Individual Savings Account (NISA) system introduced in January 2014 and steadily acquiring accounts from individual investors.

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. 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 of financial markets and the revitalization of the Japanese economy.
