SIX focuses on the development of new services for the Swiss financial center, together with its clients and FinTech companies. We act as a strategic partner, connecting start-ups, academia and market players with major banks and other financial institutions in Switzerland. Innovation is everywhere; therefore, we continuously explore novel paths and boost start-up ideas through acceleration programs and direct investments.
Digitalization and Innovation is contained in our DNA: As early as 1995, we introduced electronic trading as the first stock exchange in the world with integrated settlement and safekeeping. Digitalization has already been on our mind when it was still hardly a topic.
SIX drives the transformation of financial markets by professionalizing the business of innovation. We play a pioneering role when it comes to finding new ideas, creating new business models and services. We support promising start-ups on their way to success and thus strengthen the backbone of the Swiss financial center.
