SIX is the official securities numbering agency in Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Belgium, and in this capacity is responsible for the issuance of Valor and ISIN identifiers.
The Valor uniquely identifies financial instruments of any country and any asset class. The Valor is incorporated in the Swiss, Belgium and Liechtenstein ISIN. A Valor can be used in conjunction with an ISO Market Identifier Code (ISO 10383) and an ISO Currency Code (ISO 4217) to uniquely identify a financial instrument.
SIX is also a founding member of the Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA) and co-operator of the ANNA Service Bureau.
