KGI Securities

The Hong Kong division of Taiwanese financial services group KGI offers a handful of markets for online trading, while a substantial number of others are available for trading by telephone.

Rates for most are generally not especially competitive by international standards, especially given the high minimum fees (typically US$150 per trade).
