Complement your investment portfolio with individual stocks
Enjoy the convenience of having all of your investments in one place. Select individual stocks with the help of our powerful online tools and timely information.

Are you new to trading individual stocks?
Although mutual funds give you exposure to a broader range of stocks than you might be able to buy on your own, individual stocks may have a place in your portfolio if you want to:
• Invest in a specific company.
• Keep the stock you have in a retirement plan at work.
• Buy at a specific price set throughout the day.
• Complement the mutual funds in your existing portfolio.
• Take a hands-on approach to making informed investment decisions.

Are you an experienced stock investor?
In addition to our competitive commissions and high-quality trade executions, you can also:
• Trade on margin - Want to borrow the cash or securities you need to complete a trade? Daikyo Brokerage Limited Brokerage clients can apply to trade on margin by completing a Margin Account Application. It's important to understand that trading on margin involves a high degree of risk.
• Buy and sell options - These complex investments aren't for the faint of heart because of the significant amount of risk involved. Be sure to research them thoroughly—including applying for the required preapproval—before investing.


Understanding ETFs

What are ETFs?
ETFs combine the broad diversification of conventional index mutual funds with the continual pricing and trading flexibility of individual stocks and bonds—generally at a lower cost than conventional funds.

Are ETFs right for you?
An ETF may be appropriate if you:
• Want to buy and sell at prices set throughout the day (instead of waiting to find out what price you paid until the end of the day, like you would with a traditional mutual fund).
• Understand the risks of investing in the stock and bond markets and the bid-ask spreads involved specifically with ETFs.
• Want the potential to lower your costs.
• Compare ETFs vs. mutual funds

How do you buy them?
You can only buy and sell ETFs through a brokerage account. Setting up a Daikyo Brokerage Limited Brokerage Account is the key.
