As one of the largest financial market infrastructure companies in Europe, SIX is one of only a handful of companies acting at the intersection of finance, data, technology, and infrastructure and constitutes the backbone of the Swiss and Spanish financial centers.
SIX was established by over 120 financial institutions with the purpose of strengthening the competitiveness of its owners, clients and the financial markets in general. It is a role SIX has been rigorously pursuing since its inception. However, as new technologies allow for ground-breaking innovations that will lead toward the transformation of the entire financial market infrastructure landscape, SIX must rethink how to best fulfill that role in the future.
Additionally, the services of SIX not only benefit our customers in the financial industry, but also the wider economy and society as a whole.
Accordingly, SIX pursues a holistic set of targets, encompassing all relevant stakeholders:
- Customers: Offer first-class innovative products and services
- Financial Center & Economy: Maintain a secure, stable, and efficient infrastructure for conventional & digital assets
- People & Environment: Enable a sustainable future
- Shareholders: Serve as a vehicle for growth and value creation
To achieve these targets in a rapidly changing and increasingly global environment, SIX builds on its unique business portfolio.
Unique, because SIX operates a more diversified portfolio of activities than any other European financial market infrastructure. The diversified business portfolio puts SIX in a promising competitive position, allowing the company to tap into those growth opportunities along the entire securities value chain that add most value to its customers.
