What will the financial world look like in 5, 10 or 15 years? Which technologies will become dominant? What role will data and artificial intelligence play? We’re always thinking about the future, and we share our knowledge in various publications like white papers or reports in all the areas related to financial services.
Our white papers include analyses of developments in the finance industry, new methods or specific problems that our clients are facing. We report the facts and then assess them on the basis of conversations with experts from the world of academia and the financial industry. Our aim is to initiate discussions and provide insights.
For the global Future of Finance study SIX surveyed 297 international financial institutions covering asset management, wealth management, asset servicing, banking services, retail banking, and investment banking. They have provided insights about the growth opportunities for the finance industry, the increasing influence of ESG, the need for skilled staff, and the opportunities and risks of technological development.
Our world is changing. The white paper series of SIX aims to assess the potential impact of the many complex and concurrent developments that are affecting the industry today. “Picture of The Future“ describes the future in terms of possible scenarios.

How is the Swiss asset management industry positioning itself and how should it adapt to the increasingly data- and technology-driven world in order to ensure its future competitiveness?

Capital Creation Reimagined in Financial Markets - A SIX White Paper
In our reports, we look into issues that impact SIX and its clients.
We regularly conduct surveys, the results of which we publish in this section.
Together with W.I.R.E. – a think tank associated with Zurich’s ETH university – the Swiss Stock Exchange has developed potential theses, scenarios and action areas for Switzerland’s future financial marketplace. The key findings have been published in a book – “True Transformers.” – which is now available for sale (in German only).
