Today, Credit Suisse, Raiffeisen Schweiz Genossenschaft and UBS used SIX Deal Pool to inform investors about the latest bond issue of Pfandbriefbank with a placement volume of CHF 206 million. This marks the first usage of the new central and electronic support tool for the fixed income primary market in Switzerland. With the introduction of SIX Deal Pool, manual and bilateral processes are harmonized and simplified with a centralized electronic service used by both Buy-side and Sell-side.
SIX Deal Pool offers institutional investors and banks information about upcoming Swiss Franc bond offerings in a timely, standardized and convenient manner. Our microsite highlights the numerous benefits and allows institutional investors and banks to register for free in three simple steps.
