The European Women in Finance Awards were handed out for the 2nd time in 2021 and featured 18 categories. Organized by Markets Media, the virtual ceremony provided Jennifer Hlad, Head Equity Sales UK & Ireland at SIX Swiss Exchange, the opportunity to express her gratitude to her broad industry network for the recognition as the winner in the ‘Excellence in Exchanges’ category (see video below, at 7m53s).

Christian Reuss, Head SIX Swiss Exchange, commented: “Since Jennifer joined us six years ago, she has been elementary in raising the profile of the Swiss stock exchange in the UK and beyond, increasing visibility and liaising with the Buy Side community in order to foster new ideas and solutions. I’m only one of many to congratulate her for this well-deserved recognition.”

A recent testament of Jennifer’s precious contribution to the success of SIX Swiss Exchange has been the Financial News Trading & Tech award 2021, where the Swiss stock exchange was crowned ‘Exchange Group of the Year’. Overall, the ‘Excellence in Exchanges’ award is already the fourth trophy won by SIX Swiss Exchange in 2021, adding to the industry recognition received from SRP Europe in the area of structured products and from XENIX in the area of Exchange Traded Funds.

Jennifer Hlad comments: “All these awards clearly also belong to our clients. Their needs and their success determine what we do and our how well we do as an exchange. Our innovations and improvements are rooted in our close collaboration. We focus on creating added value for the individual market participant and, in turn, for the entire industry.”
