Global Investor Services, Inc. Enters Japanese Market and Receives Its First Order

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - Global Investor Services, Inc. (OTCBB: GISV) ("Global") entered the marketplace in Japan and received its first order from Global Daigaku. Global Daigaku is a leading online university program in Japan with affiliations to accredited universities in North America, Europe and Australasia. In operation since 2000, Global Daigaku provides Japanese students with the opportunity to advance their international experience and gain valuable skills while improving their employment opportunities in Japan and abroad (http://www.globaldaigaku.com/?locale=en).

"InvestView is an excellent online curriculum for developing investment skills. Most university students have no experience in investing in the stock market, FOREX, or futures markets," explained James Yellowlees, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Global Daigaku. "Although the Tokyo Stock Exchange has been providing disappointing returns over the past 15 years, Japanese investors engaged in FOREX trading are now poised to enter the futures markets. We believe Global Investor Services, Inc. has the best online investor education product. Given the recent launches in Korea, Vietnam and Indonesia, we are convinced that the partnership of Global Investor Services and Global Daigaku is ideal for Japan," continued Dr. Yellowlees. "In fact, we are launching a special campaign, 'Wall Street & Money Never Sleeps,' in December, which will provide Japanese students the opportunity to travel to New York City to visit Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Citigroup, and attend a seminar at the Yale Club of New York City. This is a remarkable opportunity for Japanese students to experience Wall Street and continue their online investor education," said Dr. Yellowlees.

"We are working closely with Global Investor Services who has agreed to create a Japanese language version of InvestView. Our staffs in Tokyo are contributing to the review and quality assurance of the Japanese version along with Global's developers," said Dr. Yellowlees.

"We are delighted to enter the Japanese market. This achievement represents Global's fourth market entry in the Asia Pacific region. Global Daigaku has a significant presence in Japan and for the past 10 years has provided Japanese university students with the vehicle to develop skill sets required by employers in the financial services industry," said Nick Maturo, CEO of Global Investor Services, Inc. "Since July 2010, we have been conducting InvestView presentations to prospective customers, supported by marketing activities in Japan and we are very encouraged with the positive response in various sectors. With this first order from Global Daigaku, we expect to enter the higher education and financial services sectors in this current quarter," continued Nick Maturo.
