Introduction of JPX Prime 150 Index Futures
JPX Market Innovation & Research, Inc. (JPXI), a subsidiary of Japan Exchange Group, Inc., began calculating and distributing the JPX Prime 150 Index on July 3, 2023.
The JPX Prime 150 Index is designed to highlight the top value-creating Japanese companies with the highest market capitalization on the TSE Prime Market. We hope that this index and its component stocks will become the focus of medium- to long-term investment by institutional and individual investors in Japan and abroad, thereby contributing to the spread of value-creating management among listed companies and the enhancement of the Japanese stock market’s appeal.
Osaka Exchange, Inc.
