Oku 奥
A Japanese spatial theory related to the space deep within and often hidden
In Japanese architecture and traditional gardens, Oku is expressed in the sensory experience of the journey to the centre, and can be described as penetrating the layers of an onion.

Financial markets are complex and can bring great opportunity and risk. Oku Markets provides clarity and the simple truth behind the multiple layers of the markets. We drive forward, search deeper, and bring what is distant closer.
