After 1,000 people participated in the trial, a Tokyo-based new securities company, One Tap Buy announced the company officially launched its smartphone app for stock trading on June 1, 2016. One Tap Buy has joined Japan Securities Dealers Association (JSDA) on January 12, 2016 and registered as Type I Financial Instruments Business at Kanto Local Finance Bureau on December 17 last year.
OneTap BUY is Japan’s first pure-play company focusing on stock trading via smartphone. The app allows traders to easily trade 30 foreign stocks listed on NYSE and NASDAQ by 3 taps. The company believes that Japanese individuals still have difficulty starting stock trading as it’s said 90% of Japanese people have no experience of investment. So the company considers easy and simple trading environment will be able to give good opportunity for trading to those people. Without the need for technical terms, people can buy foreign stock from 10,000 JPY via the smartphone app.
