As asset building needs grow, the base of individual investors has expanded with NISA accounts at securities firms reached 10.67 million as of September 2021, a 16.7% increase from the end of 2020*1. However, the awareness of ETFs is limited to 6.3% according to a survey by the Japan Securities Dealers Association*2. Minkabu believe that one of the reasons for this is the current situation where ETFs and investment trusts are sold separately at securities firms. To solve this problem, Minkabu group develops a integrated tool of ETFs and investment trusts.  This is also to connect to securities firms via API, in the future.

Based on the partnership agreement between Minkabu and TSE, Minkabu is to launch TSE-listed ETF information website "MINKABU ETF" equipped features stated above on April 1, 2022, aiming to promote ETF.

Minkabu continue to contribute development of economic and financial market through asset building information media such as “MINKABU” and “Kabutan,” and corporate solution services for mainly financial institutions by providing information, tools and services to a large number of investors.
