SIX has a long tradition of innovation. But for us, innovation is not a new phenomenon. For decades, SIX and its predecessor companies have contributed to making the Swiss financial center one of the most technologically advanced in the world. It goes back to the 1930s, when Ticker AG – later Telekurs AG and today SIX Financial Information – launched the stock ticker.
In 1995 the Swiss stock exchange switched from floor trading to electronic trading; in 2015 we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the new system. Back then we were also the first stock exchange in the world to introduce full integration of the clearing and settlement of stock exchange transactions. We launched another innovation, Paymit, in 2015.
Our employees must have the opportunity to participate actively by contributing their ideas, developing innovative approaches unhampered by day-to-day business and bringing appropriate solutions to market readiness within a short time. We must also be in a position to recognize relevant technological trends promptly and harness them for our business.
