ThinkMarkets launches Japan FX trading after acquiring affiliate
After receiving a Japan FX license by acquiring a Japan affiliate last year, multi-asset online trading firm ThinkMarkets has announced that it is officially launching trading in Japan via its proprietary mobile app, ThinkTrader.
Until now, ThinkMarkets’ existing user-base in Japan has been using the ThinkTrader app for charting and analysis.
With over 500,000 downloads worldwide, the ThinkTrader app enables ThinkMarkets’ clients to use powerful analytics on mobile and tablet devices. The official launch in Japan marks yet another achievement for the rapidly growing globally regulated online brokerage firm. The milestone sets out ThinkMarkets as one of the very few international brokers to attempt penetrating the largest retail FX market in the world by volume.
ThinkMarkets recently made headlines by raising $30 million in capital in what the company termed a pre-IPO round.
ThinkMarkets CEO and co-founder Nauman Anees commented:
“Our trading app ThinkTrader is a unique proposition for the Japanese market. With its streamlined user interface, sophisticated charting capabilities and ultrafast execution speeds, we are confident we will meet the high expectations of clients in Japan.”
“Coupled with our exceptional customer support, our proprietary technology enables us to scale our offering into new markets quickly and efficiently. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome new our new clients in Japan to the ThinkMarkets trading family.”
ThinkMarkets Japanese office CEO, Koike Kazuhiro, added:
“We are very proud to start our business in the Japanese market, which has one of the most rigorous and well-regulated financial systems in the world. I hope that we can contribute to the revitalization of the Japanese capital market by leveraging the strengths of our group.”
