It was to our surprise and regret that a Financial Times article on 8th March 2021 reported that the CEO of SBI Holdings, Inc. planned to pull out of operations in Hong Kong. We would like to clearly inform that we at SBI Securities have not officially discussed about any withdrawal from Hong Kong and no such decision is official. We sincerely apologise for any surprise and confusion caused by such media reports.
The main topics discussed during the interview with the CEO of SBI Holdings, Inc. were the group’s business strategies of committing to Osaka International Financial Center Plan (Kansai-region, Japan) and Collaboration with Regional Banks in Japan, and aspirations to become the fourth-largest Japanese Mega-Bank. Unfortunately, the Financial Times journalist did not mention these topics in the article at all and instead focused only on some side remarks made in relation to Hong Kong and London.
As CEO of SBI Securities (Hong Kong) Limited, I reiterate that we have no intention to withdraw from Hong Kong operations and assure that we will provide proper and sufficient communication in advance with our clients and other relevant parties in the unlikely event that such a decision is made.
 
Jun Kusano
Chief Executive Officer
SBI Securities (Hong Kong) Limited

Declaration about the soliciting of account opening and funds transferring through the fake stock/ bond trading application of the SBI Group
 
Recently, several individual investors have inquired about the authenticity of the application “SBI思佰益”. We hereby declare that this application has nothing to do with the SBI Group.
The fraudulent act toward the individual investors is mainly about soliciting the installation of the fake trading application, making stock trading recommendations and consultation through SNS such as Weibo and Wechat, and then asking the investors to transfer their funds to the company’s account.
SBI Securities, as a subsidiary of the SBI Group, is the No. 1 online securities company in Japan, and has received years of patronage from its customers. We are actively considering developing the securities business in China, however, we have not developed any securities related business nor such solicitation activities yet in mainland China at this moment.
Lately, there have been several fraudulent activities related to the fake SBI Group and its affiliated companies, so please be careful. SBI (CHINA) CO., LTD, as the legal entity of the SBI Group in mainland China, is devoted to the investment business, financial service business and biotechnology business in mainland China. If you receive any suspicious notice or contact as described above, please feel free to confirm with SBI China on 021-68776855 or with SBI Securities (Hong Kong) Limited at 852-22529500 immediately.
 
關於偽裝SBI集團關聯公司證券交易應用程序,誘騙投資人進行股票債券交易、賬戶開設以及匯款的行為說明
 
近日,有數名個人投資者向我們關聯公司諮詢【SBI思佰益】應用程序的真偽情況。在此,我們鄭重說明,該應用程序與SBI集團沒有任何關係。
我們發現,其主要面向個人投資者,通過微博、微信等社交軟件誘騙個人投資者下載其應用程序進行股票債券交易,並藉此向投資者提出向其賬戶進行匯款的要求。
SBI集團旗下的SBI證券作為日本線上最大的證券公司,多年來一直受到廣大客戶的好評和惠顧。 SBI證券正積極探討開拓中國大陸市場,但目前尚未在中國大陸開展任何形式的相關服務,也沒有進行類似的營銷活動。
最近,偽裝成SBI集團及其關聯公司的詐騙行為較多,還請多加註意。思佰益(中國)投資有限公司作為SBI集團在中國大陸的唯一法人主體,一直致力於集團公司在華的投資、金融服務、生物製藥等業務的開展。如果您遇到自稱是SBI集團中國代表處僱員或收到類似名片並懷疑其真實性,請聯繫思佰益中國(021-68776855)或思佰益證券(香港)有限公司(852-22529500)來證實其是否真實隸屬於SBI集團。
