FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

ZuluTrade, Finvasia Group’s social trading and broker-agnostic pillar, recently announced its plans to grow its presence in the Land of the Rising Sun.

ZuluTrade, the social trading platform that not so long ago rocked the stage in Dubai, winning the “Best Social Trading Solution – MEA” at the UF AWARDS MEA 2023, enjoys the spotlight of the media again with its announcement to expand its operations in Japan.

The decision to become more active in the Nippon country is the result of a well thought out approach, as the company aims to service more tech-savvy traders, which Japan is famously home to.

Tajinder Virk, Finvasia Group Co-founder and CEO ZuluTrade, said: “We are excited to extend our offering to Japanese traders. We plan to release a suite of products and services tailored to the Japanese market, specifically more tech-driven services and instruments to meet the sophisticated demands of Nippon traders.”

The company will offer its regular services, as well as series of new, Japan-centric products and services through its already established entity in the country – ZuluTrade Japan CO Ltd., licensed under the FSA with its Investment Account Licence (Registration number: Tokai Local Finance Bureau(FIBO) No.196).

With visionaries such as Manabu Kato, Kaouru Nishi, prominent businessmen and financiers in the country, and Finvasia’s Co-founder in its Board of Directors, ZuluTrade starts a new chapter in its 15-year-old history. First opening an office in Hiroshima, the company also mulls plans to open a second office in Tokyo. However, no official statements have been made.

More exciting features and products, including a brand-new social trading portal with fast-track onboarding and low fees to give traders a head start on their journey. In addition, ZuluTrade’s broker-agnostic and transparent environment will also undergo a number of changes and adjustments aimed at increasing its stability.

Furthermore, the company has also started working on a new and improved version of its current social trading infrastructure, ZuluTrade 2.0, which will be launched in the coming months.

Sharing his thoughts on ZuluTrade’s Japan expansion, Manabu Kato, Director, also said: “I am pleased to carry ZuluTrade’s mission forward and reach new heights with ZuluTrade 2.0.”

Kaouru Nishi, ZuluTrade Japan Director, added: “I am excited to introduce ZuluTrade in Japan. Traders need diversification, variation, and I believe ZuluTrade ticks all boxes when it comes to portfolio diversification and smooth user experience.”

Time for brokers to add options trading as volumes explode on high volatility

“Usually, adding options to the typical CFDs and equities offering leads to fragmentation of the platform technology as many brokers will need additional back-end and front-end components, and that could be an important barrier for them. Apart from that, legal hassle and costs associated with proper licensing of market data could be a barrier at first. We are seeing this trend among market data vendors and exchanges to make it easier and more affordable.”
