An ETP is a collateralized, non-interest-paying bearer debt security issued as a security and traded as well as redeemed in the same structure on a continuous basis. Collateral is deposited with a third party and amounts to at least 100% of the outstanding amount. ETPs relate to an underlying instrument that is admitted by the Regulatory Board of SIX Exchange Regulation, i.e. that has a price that is set regularly and that is publicly accessible. Unlike ETFs, an ETP is no collective investment scheme in the sense of the Federal Act on Collective Investment Schemes (CISA) and with that is not supervised by FINMA. This product is not CCP eligible. Further information on the ETP trading segment at SIX is published online:
