There is a steady increase in the legal requirements placed on international companies. The same is true of the ethical requirements of society. SIX is expected to respect the rules of legal and regulatory regimes and to ensure its conduct is appropriate. That is more important than ever for the success of our company. The need to live out a compliance culture and to respect and comply with laws, regulations, directives and local requirements therefore goes without saying for us.
Compliance is positioned as a second line of defence at SIX. The aim is to avoid risks, or at least to identify them at an early stage. Compliance thereby helps the company to avoid sanctions, financial loss or damage to its reputation.
