The Swiss Stock Exchange scooped up a trio of awards at the prestigious Global Custodian Leaders in Custody Awards, which took place in a virtual format on September 24. The Swiss Stock Exchange was recognised as the best provider in relationship management and client service; asset servicing and the top performer in European major markets.

This caps a successful 12 months for the Swiss Stock Exchange. At last year’s Leaders in Custody Awards, the Swiss Stock Exchange picked up three awards including the “Editor’s choice – best innovation in market infrastructure,’ “Major markets continued excellence/ICSDs” and “best asset servicing – major markets for Western Europe.”

“Once again, the Swiss Stock Exchange has demonstrated the excellence of its products and services by winning three awards at the Global Custodian Leaders in Custody Awards. These awards demonstrate the Swiss Stock Exchange’s continued commitment to post-trade excellence, innovation and customer focus as well as the recognition that clients are at the very core of everything we do, every day,” said Thomas Zeeb, Head Securities & Exchanges at the Swiss Stock Exchange.

In addition to demonstrating extraordinary operational resilience and safeguarding clients’ interests during the recent Covid-19 volatility, the Swiss Stock Exchange has been busy developing a number of game-changing solutions for the industry. 

Its Future Tri-party Agent (FTPA) service is now live and is supporting customers with their collateral management requirements. At the same time, the Exchange has also launched its new Advanced Tax Service (ATS), which provides clients with tax reclaim support. 

Furthermore, the Swiss Stock Exchange fully recognises that markets are undergoing an unprecedented technological transformation, which is why it has created the SIX Digital Exchange (SDX), a fully integrated issuance, trading, settlement and custody infrastructure for digital assets.
