Japan Trading Team

Ranking Overview Methodology

Investor interest is up in Japan and trading volumes at top trading firms have been buoyed along with it.

“Global market conditions have resulted in strong client activity in Japan, particularly from U.S. clients,” said Shinji Ogawa and Khahlil Kirtman, co-heads of Japan Cash Equity Sales for JPMorgan Securities Japan, in an email. “As with the past year, the U.S. interest rate cycle will be a key driver of markets in 2024. The way markets have reacted has readied Japan to address any inflationary impact.”

Trading firms reported an increase in volume since 2022. Average volume in 2023 was up 16 percent compared to the previous year, according to data provided by Nomura. So far in 2024, volume is more than 44 percent higher than in 2023.

“Volumes are healthy and robust,” wrote Ogawa and Kirman. “We have seen an increase in companies visiting Japan and a growing number of attendees at conferences.”
