Our innovation strategy is focused on these four key areas of the financial industry:

New Business Unit Innovation & Digital

SIX consolidates its innovation organization into a new business unit. Innovation & Digital is set to become the innovative drive behind new infrastructure services for the Swiss financial center. In addition to reinforcement of its organizational structure, SIX is also investing CHF 50 million in a venture fund to promote innovation in the Swiss financial center. Innovation partnerships with banks will be intensified in the infrastructure field. New services will be developed together with individual banking groups to better meet specific user requirements. A competence center for relevant disruptive technologies (blockchain, advanced analytics, etc.) is also emerging.
