This year is the 30th anniversary of the introduction of Nikkei 225 Futures and TOPIX Futures on the Osaka Exchange, the derivatives arm of the Japan Exchange Group. Tracking price movements on the Nikkei Stock Average (Nikkei 225) and the Tokyo Stock Price Index (TOPIX) , each day thousands of contracts are actively traded all over the world. Over the years the market has seen steady growth, innovating to meet the changing needs of a fast growing global customer base.
To mark this anniversary the Osaka Exchange -JPX, in partnership with the Financial Times, will host an exclusive dinner in celebration of 30 Years of Futures Trading on the Osaka Exchange. Bringing together leading traders, fund managers, market influencers and advisors, this invitation-only event will look back at how futures trading has progressed from the pioneering days of 1988 to today’s well-regulated and globally sophisticated markets. Our expert panel of speakers will explore the key factors likely to shape the next phase of growth in this internationally recognised market focusing not only products and services to improve liquidity and price discovery, but also assessing the role that technology and machine learning will play in dictating the path of futures trading in the years ahead.
We hope you will join our discussion as we look ahead to the next 30 years for Nikkei 225 Futures and TOPIX Futures.
