Webull launches stock trading platform in Japan
“We are delighted to be launching in Japan, the largest market in Asia-Pacific, following our successful launches in Singapore and Australia last year.”
Webull Corporation has announced the launch of the Webull app in Japan, through Webull Securities (Japan) Co. Ltd., an entity licensed with the Financial Services Agency, Japan’s financial watchdog.
Webull Japan offers residents in Japan the ability to trade thousands of U.S.-listed stocks and hundreds of ETFs, including many fractional shares, and access to a number of free trading tools to make better investment decisions, such as stock-specific analyst ratings, technical analysis tools, financial news, and industry data.
Webull Japan follows launch in Singapore and Australia
Trading over Webull’s platform is also available in the United States, Hong Kong S.A.R., Singapore, Australia, and South Africa, through Webull Entities licensed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) of Hong Kong S.A.R., the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA), respectively.
Bernard Teo, Head of Asia-Pacific for Webull, commented: “We are delighted to be launching in Japan, the largest market in Asia-Pacific, following our successful launches in Singapore and Australia last year. We are confident that our ability to provide a highly convenient mobile trading tool and stock trading environment with the industry’s lowest commissions will be highly attractive to investors in Japan. Webull’s entry into Japan marks another step in Webull’s mission to help investors around the world “Enjoy Tech. Enjoy Investing.”
Wataru Kojima, CEO of Webull Securities (Japan) Co. Ltd. commented: “Interest in investing and asset management is increasing in Japan, especially in US stocks, due in large part to recessionary concerns and low interest rates. Webull provides a unique and easy-to-use format that we believe is an innovative and attractive solution to both experienced investors and new investors alike. We will start by launching our popular app with access to US stocks and ETFs, and will introduce new and exciting products over the coming months. ”
As part of its launch promotion, Webull will empower its clients with even more sophisticated investment tools by offering Nasdaq TotalView for a 3-month complimentary trial period.
Webull Japan will initially offer trading in only US securities and expects to begin offering Japanese securities in mid-2023 as well as US Options and Chinese and Hong Kong S.A.R. securities later this year.
