In the late 1970s, visionary members of Okachi & Company Limited (Tokyo, Japan), a leading Japanese FCM then and now, foresaw the growing opportunity to develop the commodity futures markets around Asia. They decided that their first step toward this venture would be made in Hong Kong.
During the initial years, Okachi's role in the Hong Kong commodity futures markets was as an international broker who essentially bridged and provided arbitrage trading knowledge and opportunities between Hong Kong and Japanese markets for the investors in these two countries.
Over the decades, the economic prosperity in Hong Kong and the greater region, complemented with the company's diligent and effective efforts, paved the way for Okachi Hong Kong to successfully position itself as one of the prominent intermediaries in the global futures markets.
Despite this success, we continuously focus to enhance customer services and strive to propel it to an even higher level.
With a strategic management of resources, such as our vast experience in the industry and immense expertise amongst a rich pool of staff in the regional network, we believe that our future is dedicated to assisting our clients' aspirations to attain their trading goals.
