Japanese Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation System

An electronic securities exchange headquartered in Tokyo. Founded in 1963 as an over-the-counter exchange, it reorganized as a securities exchange in 2004. At reorganization, it became the first new securities exchange in Japan in nearly a half century. While its operations are similar to NASDAQ in the United States, the two are unrelated.
