ISPF: Growing Importance
Last year, the International Structured Products Forum (ISPF) celebrated its 10th anniversary. The Swiss Stock Exchange as host and main organizer, together with the Swiss Structured Products Association (SSPA), once again made the conference a place for the exchange of ideas, opinions and views. Once a year, experts from Switzerland and the EU meet to discuss the challenges and current issues facing the industry. From an initial 40 experts, the 2-day conference in Lucerne in the heart of Switzerland has now grown to over 100 experts and underlines the importance of the industry.
At the SRP Europe 2020 awards at the end of January 2020 the Swiss Stock Exchange wins the prestigious ‘Best Structured Products and Derivatives Exchange’ award. This award cements the reputation of the Swiss Stock Exchange as a leading innovator and disruptor in the industry.
