Tokyo, March 22, 2011 - Tokyo Stock Exchange, Inc. (TSE) has decided to establish a "Marketing and Promotion Unit" in April 2011.
The market environment surrounding TSE has been rapidly changing, including intensified global inter-market competition as well as the diversification and enhancement of trading techniques. In this environment, customers have a variety of needs according to specific financial products, services and other areas.
Given these circumstances, TSE will execute a structural change and consolidate each department's sales functions to allow for quick and flexible response to customer needs. This will enable TSE to remain ahead of the curve in the market and pursue customer-oriented services.
Specifically, the Marketing and Promotion Unit will be divided into the "New Listings" and "Market Business Development" departments.
