These would be contracts on differences (CFDs) on select foreign stocks and TriAutoETF, or ETF focusing on margin transactions.

Invast Securities, based in Tokyo, consists of a group of companies regulated by the Japanese Financial Services Agency (JSFA) and the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC). The company offers trading in forex and contracts for difference (CFDs).
