First Published 27th December 2017

Japanese Financial Services Authority's approval of Cboe, including Cboe BZX US Equities Exchange, expected to expand Japanese investors' access to all US listed securities

Chicago - The Japanese Financial Services Authority (JFSA) has added Cboe Global Markets - US Equities to the regulator's list of Designated Foreign Financial Instrument Exchanges.

Cboe's recognition by the JFSA eases regulations related to disclosures for retail investors and certain discretionary accounts, a change that is expected to facilitate Japanese investment in Cboe-listed securities. This designation clears the way for additional transfers to the Cboe BZX Exchange from other U.S. listing venues, especially ETF transfers of significant volume and assets.
