Finatext in Tokyo. May 2017.
Finatext began with the aim to make retail investment platforms more easily accessible across the world. Our approach to this has been centred around creating mobile applications which enable users to improve their financial literacy while accessing various financial markets.
In 2014, Finatext was founded in Tokyo by an ex-investment banking professional and a quantitative analyst. It quickly rose to prominence with the release of applications such as Asukabu and Karu FX and is currently the most popular mobile-based retail investment provider in Japan.
In 2016, Finatext acquired Nowcast, a Tokyo-based Big Data Research House. Big Data has since become a huge part of our focus as we look to provide premium data analytics solutions to established financial institutions.
We now aim to repeat the success that we have experienced domestically on a global scale with newly-established offices in Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh, and most recently, London.
