Hello. I'm Koichi Ishida. Nice to meet you.
I live in Tokyo, Japan.
Presently, I'm jobless. I live on just my investments.
I invest in company stocks, unit trusts, and the US dollar via stock broker companies in Japan.
I have a saving account at a bank in Hong Kong. I want to invest via the bank. The law allows that in Hong Kong.
In Japan, a banking service and a stock trading service must be separated by law. A bank can't provide both a banking service and a stock trading service.
In Japan, a bank should provide only a banking service, and stock trading service is provided by a stock broker company.
The law in Hong Kong is different from the one in Japan.
To start an investment in Hong Kong, I need to open an investment account at the bank in addition to a saving account.
To open an investment account, I have to have an interview at the bank. I have to show I understand the risk of investments at the interview.
Passing the interview is my goal of learning English.
