SIX is committed to ensuring compliance of its relevant benchmarks for continued use internationally by our customers and financial service entities.

SIX is compliant with the International Organization of Securities Commission (IOSCO) "Principles for Financial Benchmarks".

SIX Index AG received the clearance (“endorsement”) for its major Swiss indices under the EU Benchmark Regulation (BMR) and has been confirmed as Benchmark Administrator by the Swedish financial supervision authority (Finansinspektionen). The “endorsement” has been carried out by SIX Financial Information Nordic AB in Stockholm, which is also a Benchmark Administrator under BMR. In the meantime, further benchmarks have been cleared. A complete list of the endorsed benchmarks can be found in table "SIX indices endorsed under EU Benchmark Regulation" below.

For any existing or new index as soon as clients would like to use them in the EU, SIX will initiate an endorsement as benchmark under the EU BMR.

Advisory Board

The Equity Index Commission, Bond Index Commission and Swiss Reference Rates Index Commission advise the Management Committee of SIX in all matters related to the indices. Where necessary, the submit proposals regarding changes in index regulations, treatment of capital events and adjustments outside the established review and acceptance period. The Index Commissions meet at least once per year. They provide valuable advice on how to improve existing products and on the design of new products.

When Members of the Equity Index Commission, the Bond Index Commission or the Swiss Reference Rates Index Commission are selected, care is taken to ensure that they represent a variety of viewpoints.
