Securitiers Business

Brokerage Business

SBI SECURITIES started its Internet trading services in October 1999. As a pioneer of online integrated securities business in Japan, under the corporate mission of adherence to the “Customer-centric Principle,” SBI SECURITIES has worked to develop the industry’s lowest commission structure, provide a wealth of high-quality investment information and real-time trading tools, offer attractive investment opportunities (products), and ensure trading safety. These efforts have met with the approval of large numbers of investors, and SBI SECURITIES has built a position as the leader in Japan's online securities industry in terms of the number of accounts, customers’ deposit assets, and stock-brokerage trading value.

Offering Foreign Stocks

SBI SECURITIES aims to provide individual investors in Japan with more global investment opportunities. Since starting the U.S. stock trading service in August 2003, we have steadily expanded the scope of the foreign stock offering. We currently offer stocks from a total of nine countries: the U.S., China (Hong Kong market), South Korea, Russia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia. Customers can also invest in other markets and financial instruments from around the world by utilizing U.S. ETFs, Chinese ETFs, U.S. ADRs, and other investment vehicles.

In addition, in the interest of customer convenience, we have made possible real-time trading of foreign stocks during trading hours(*1) and transaction settlement in foreign currencies and yen(*2). Furthermore, to support this investment environment, we actively work to expand and upgrade our extensive provision of investment data via stock information, charts, stock summaries, financial details, rankings, and news and by distributing overseas reports.
