CHICAGO, Dec. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cboe Global Markets, Inc. (Cboe: CBOE |Nasdaq :CBOE ) today announced the Japanese Financial Services Authority (JFSA) has added Cboe Global Markets – U.S. 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.
"We are proud to earn this distinguished designation from the JFSA," said Laura Morrison, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Exchange Traded Products at Cboe. "My team and I are thankful for the tremendous support from dozens of Japanese based ETF Issuers and trading firms who supported the designation."
Year-to-date, Cboe has welcomed 126 ETFs to its U.S. market. In the third quarter of 2017, Cboe welcomed a total of 23 ETFs to the Cboe ETF Marketplace as well as 30 transfers, and year-to-date has won 33 percent of all new U.S. ETF listings. There are now 247 ETFs listed on the Cboe ETF Marketplace, from 45 different issuers.
