Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore factors affecting individuals| usage of Mobile Securities Management System (MSMS). On the basis of an extensive review of literature in Task Technology Fit (TTF) theory and Mobile Commerce (MC) adoption, a revised TTF model is proposed and tested using data collected from an online survey of 440 respondents. The results show that: the fit between task and technology positively affects MSMS usage, while alternative systems play a negative role; functions of MSMS, self-efficacy and experience are important factors affecting the fit; MSMS adopting does not heavily depend on the macro-environment of the stock market. Implications for improving other types of MC applications adoption are discussed.

Keywords: mobile communications; mobile commerce; m-commerce; technology adoption; MSMS; mobile securities management system; TTF; task–technology fit.
