Strengthen the ties between Japan and Singapore’s capital markets

Japan Exchange Group (JPX) is a global leader within the exchange industry and home to Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) and Osaka Exchange (OSE), respectively providers of one of the world’s largest equity markets and prominent Japanese derivative products.

Last year, JPX successfully sought approval from the Monetary Authority of Singapore to convert the TSE and OSE representative offices in the city into official branches. With a strong turnout from the industry at the official launch, JPX was proud to have added another highlight to the city state’s jubilee year. The status upgrades also serve as further evidence that JPX values its relationships with its Singaporean partners as the group strengthens its focus on Asia.

Since establishing a physical presence in Singapore almost twenty years ago, JPX has benefited from Singapore’s business-friendly environment and bustling international community and has forged valuable,enduring ties. The group also witnessed the nation’s development as a global financial and technological hub and the increasing affluence within Singapore which lead to demand for asset building.
