Japan Exchange Group, Inc. (株式会社日本取引所グループ, Kabushiki-gaisha Nippon Torihikijo Gurūpu) (JPX) is a Japanese financial services corporation that operates multiple securities exchanges including Tokyo Stock Exchange and Osaka Securities Exchange. It was formed by the merger of the two companies on January 1, 2013.

It is the world's third largest exchange, behind NYSE and NASDAQ and hence Asia's largest bourse.[1]
