The Strategic Target Picture of SIX

Where will SIX be in five years’ time? How will SIX be perceived by partners, clients, market participants, institutions and relevant interest groups in 2023? The new strategy will be successfully implemented when the following target picture is in people’s minds:

SIX has orchestrated...

... the reshaping and industrialization of the Swiss financial center through new innovative products and services.

SIX has modernized...

... its infrastructure and runs best-in-class systems and services.

SIX has actively promoted and shaped...

... the digital transformation of the Swiss financial center.

SIX has maintained and strengthened...

In 2023, SIX will thus continue to present itself as a highly reliable and trustworthy partner. SIX is the preferred provider for financial market participants for infrastructure and value-adding services in the areas of securities, financial information and banking services. At the same time, SIX is recognized as the key driving force for new innovative services in the banking and financial services sector, domestically and internationally.

Systemic Importance

SIX is the backbone of the Swiss financial center. Without our high-performance platforms the Swiss economy would come to a standstill. Our systemically important services are monitored by the Swiss National Bank (SNB) and the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).
