“No other brokers have offered these products to Japanese investors before now. These offerings will allow our users to diversify their portfolios and take advantage of unique and exciting new investment opportunities.”

Webull Japan has launched US Single Stock Options (SSOs) and a suite of US Index Options to allow Japanese retail investors convenient access to US SSOs and cash-settled Index Options trading.

Webull Japan, the trade name of Webull Securities (Japan) Co. Ltd., the Japanese brokerage firm licensed by the Kanto Financial Bureau of the Ministry of Finance, is the first broker-dealer to offer US Index Options to retail investors in Japan.

US SSO and Index Options also available at Webull operations in US, Singapore, Australia

The Japanese subsidiary of New York-headquartered Webull Corporation extended existing US and Japanese stock offerings to further its commitment to offering new and innovative products and education resources to retail investors across the globe.

The introduction of US Single Stock Options and US Index Options for Japanese residents follows the successful launch to customers in the United States, Singapore, and Australia.

Webull also aims to increase the exposure of these products to its Japanese user base via the education tools on the Webull platform.

“No other brokers have offered these products to Japanese investors before now”

Wataru Kojima, Chief Executive Officer of Webull Japan, said: “We are thrilled to offer Japanese retail investors access to US Single Stock Options as well as popular range of US Index Options, such as VIX, SPX, and XSP. No other brokers have offered these products to Japanese investors before now. These offerings will allow our users to diversify their portfolios and take advantage of unique and exciting new investment opportunities.

“Webull Japan is committed to providing its users with the best investment opportunities and experience, and the launch of US SSOs and US Index Options is a testament to that commitment. We look forward to continuing to increase our product offerings locally and are excited about the opportunities it will bring to Japanese retail investors.”

The Webull Group serves tens of millions of users from over 180 countries, providing retail investors with 24/7 access to global financial markets and products, including stocks, ETFs, options, and fractional shares.

The global brokerage operates in the United States, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong S.A.R., Singapore, Japan, South Africa, and Australia.
