"Tokyo is one of world's largest foreign exchange trading hubs, so the expansion of our brokerage services offering with the addition of FX in Japan is an exciting milestone for us as we continue our global expansion," said Nauman Anees, CEO of ThinkMarkets. "This announcement is also significant because it coincides with the opening of our Tokyo office."

TF Global Markets Japan Ltd is the corporate name of ThinkMarket's Japan office, led by newly-appointed industry expert Koike Kazuhiro, who will head the company's operations in Japan as chief executive. Kazuhiro's experience includes past leadership positions with the Nasdaq Japan Exchange, Credit Suisse Group, and publicly traded companies such as Traders Securities.

"Adding Japan's foreign exchange markets to our existing brokerage services will appeal to current forex traders, while our Tokyo office opening will allow us to better serve local customer needs," said Kazuhiro. "We are looking forward to this new chapter in the company's history."
