If a security has been lost, stolen or destroyed, it can be stopped at SIX. Securities reported for stopping include listed and unlisted Swiss securities, foreign securities if they are traded on the Swiss Stock Exchange and Euro bonds. The stopping does not mean that the instrument is blocked by authorities or is declared null and void. The stopping only means that the owner has reported a security missing and that legal proceedings might be taken to declare the security null and void or that a security might have been declared null and void in an official publication after legal proceedings.
A stopping announcement can help find missing instruments and, on the other hand, warns banks and their clients against acquiring such securities. SIX does not accept responsibility for the correctness, accuracy or completeness of the information on a security, as it cannot verify its accuracy.
After SIX has received a stopping message, the instrument is added to the SIX data base and is available to clients via our distribution platforms and our display product.
Download the stopping announcement form and return it to SIX.
