Tiger Brokers continues to offer competitive trading rates, with virtual asset trading fees at only 0.2% of the transaction value, and custody fees waived. Unlike stock trading, virtual assets are settled instantly and can be traded 24/7. All registered users in Hong Kong can view real-time quotes, as well as top gainers and losers of virtual assets, via the user-friendly Tiger Trade interface, keeping abreast of market conditions anytime, anywhere.

Customers also have the option to schedule an in-person visit to the Tiger Brokers office, where professional representatives will assist customers in completing the account opening and certification process. Looking ahead, Tiger Brokers plans to extend its virtual asset trading services to retail investors, subject to regulatory approval. Additionally, the company is considering the introduction of virtual asset spot withdrawal and deposit services.

Beyond virtual asset spot trading, Tiger Brokers also offers trading of U.S.-listed bitcoin spot ETFs and Hong Kong-listed spot bitcoin and ether ETFs to Hong Kong investors.

Recently, the SFC granted Tiger Brokers a Type 9 license for asset management services.
