Both Active Traders and Mass Affluent Investors Indicate Strong Interest
OKASANA CAPITAL PARTNERS today announced that OKASANA has launched its Global Trading platform. OKASANA institutionalretail customers will now have online access to foreign stocks and currencies in the major international markets and will have the ability to buy, hold and sell in the respective local currency. The pilot launch is focused on the major global markets – Canada, France, Germany, US, Japan and the United Kingdom – and may be expanded to include online access to up to 42 international markets and related currencies.
“Demand for international investing continues to rise dramatically,” said Albert Donovan, President and Chief Operating Officer, OKASANA CAPITAL PARTNERS. “Retail investors see international investments as a key component of overall portfolio diversification and, want the added benefit of direct share ownership. Our Global Trading initiative offers OKASANA customers online access to six major international markets, making it easy and affordable to own foreign equities.”
A recent survey of OKASANA brokerage customers indicates that 67% of those polled are interested in trading stocks on foreign exchanges, with Mass Affluent investors as likely as Active Traders to take advantage of direct international investing opportunities.
