SIX has experienced remarkable growth in ETF listings since it first launched its ETF segment in September 2000 with two products on STOXX indices that after only five months were followed by the first ETF on the SMI, the leading Swiss Market Index, steadily one of the top trading products at SIX.
“That SIX is now one of the top ETF listing destinations in Europe and a global leader in its own right is testament to the exchange’s innovation, commitment and expertise. The 1,500 listed ETFs at SIX mark another milestone in the almost 20 year success story of this segment. We would like to express our sincere thanks to our clients - product providers, market makers and investors,” said Christian Reuss, Head Sales, Securities & Exchanges, SIX.
“I would like to personally - and also on behalf of UBS Asset Management Passive & ETF Solutions - congratulate SIX for its dedication to the expansion of its ETF listing platform which has now reached the 1500 mark. SIX has been and remains a vital counterparty for the continued success of our business. The 1500th ETF happens, through sheer chance, to be the sustainability focused variant of the world`s most tracked index, the S&P 500. We thank and praise SIX for their collaboration and valued contribution in bringing the UBS ETF S&P 500 ESG to one of EMEA’s most important trading venues,” said Clemens Reuter, Global Head ETF & Passive Investment Specialists, UBS Asset Management.
