Buying a Japanese listed share?

#154257

Postby FredBloggs » July 23rd, 2018, 6:35 am

I am mulling over perhaps buying a stake in a company listed on the main Tokyo stock exchange. I have an account with Interactive Investors and Tokyo is not on their list of available overseas markets. I have an unused account with Hargreaves Lansdown, they don't do Tokyo either. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Bloggs.

I believe Tokyo has some difficult rules for gaijin. Hence why it is uncommon for foreign brokers to include them.

Many of the larger Japanese companies are available as American Depository Receipts (ADRs). A sort of one-stock fully funded ETF. Traded on US markets.

Thanks, sadly, I checked. This one isn't. Only on Tokyo exchange. Maybe pass this one over. A shame, but hey ho. Not the end of the world.
