China Financial Leadership Training

August 2017-Toronto, Canada

Primary Financial Market Destination: Canad Stock Exchange-TMX

IIn 1999, amid a major realignment of Canadian exchanges, the TSX became Canada's sole exchange for trading senior equities. The Montreal Exchange became the center for derivatives trading, while the Vancouver and Alberta Stock Exchanges merged to form the Canadian Venture Exchange, handling trading in junior equities.

Trading volumes continued to set new records. In March 2000, monthly trading on the TSX rose above $100 billion for the first time; two months later, daily trading volume topped a record $15 billion. In April 2000, the demutualization process that was started in 1999 was completed, enabling the TSX to become a for-profit company.

2001 - Present

In 2001, the TSX completed the acquisition of the Canadian Venture Exchange, which was renamed TSX Venture Exchange the following year. In 2002, Standard & Poor's (S&P) took over management of the TSX 300 Composite Index, which was renamed S&P/TSX Composite Index. In April of that year, the Toronto Stock Exchange was rebranded as TSX. (Read about the two largest exchanges in North America in The Tale Of Two Exchanges: NYSE And Nasdaq.) In 2005, total value traded on the TSX exceeded $1 trillion for the year for the first time. In 2007, the TSX Group and Montreal Exchange agreed to combine to form TMX Group. The two entities completed their business combination in 2008, with the TSX Group undergoing a name change to TMX Group (TSX:X).

With approximately 4,000 companies listed, the TMX Group ranks second in the world in terms of listed public companies as of August 2008. The TMX was also ranked No.7 in the world in 2007 for raising equity capital, with C$58.8 billion raised through a total of 465 financings. The TMX is one of the most vibrant markets in the world for mining and energy issues, and had the largest number of listed mining companies in the world in 2008. In 2007, TSX and TSX Venture issuers accounted for 35% of total equity capital raised for mining companies worldwide.

Japan Financial Leadership Training

August 2018-Tokyo/Osaka, Japan

Primary Financial Market Destination: Tokyo Stock Exchange

In the 1870's, a securities system was introduced in Japan and public bond negotiation began. This resulted in the request for a public trading institution; and, the "Stock Exchange Ordinance" was enacted in May 1878. Based on this ordinance, the "Tokyo Stock Exchange Co., Ltd." was established on May 15, 1878; and trading began on June 1st.

In March 1943, the "Japan Securities Exchange Law" was enacted to reorganize the Stock Exchange as a war-time controlled institution. On June 30, 1943, 11 stock exchanges throughout Japan were unified and a quasi-public corporation, the "Japan Securities Exchange", was established (dissolved in April, 1947).

With worsening war conditions and air-raids on the main island of Japan, the securities market was forced to suspend trading sessions on all securities markets from August 10, 1945. It was difficult to re-open the Stock Exchange by a Memorandum of Supreme Commander of Allied Powers (SCAP) in September 1945; however, trading was restarted by unofficial group transactions in December of 1945.

The Securities and Exchange Law was enacted in March of 1947, and entirely revised in April of 1948. On April 1, 1949, three stock exchanges were established in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya. Trading on these exchanges began on May 16. In July of that same year, five additional stock exchanges were established in Kyoto (merged into Osaka Securities Exchange in March 2001), Kobe (dissolved in October 1967), Hiroshima (merged into Tokyo Stock Exchange in March 2000), Fukuoka, and Niigata (merged with Tokyo Stock Exchange in March 2000). In addition, the Sapporo Securities Exchange was established in April 1950. Consequently, Japan now has five stock exchanges.
