How You Will Benefit

Stay Aware, Stay Ahead

The SIX data model enables complex events to be standardized, decrypted, and delivered in near-real time.

Our service helps you to plan ahead and reduce the risk of missing announcements. It notifies you in advance of events taking place in your portfolio.

In the past, customers had to combine data from SIX, fund manufacturers, and different specialist companies, in a number of hard-to-integrate formats. SIX now works with more than 50 partners to deliver aggregated corporate actions data in a wide variety of formats that can be integrated easily.

We focus on the quality, accuracy and timeliness of our corporate actions data, as well as on how clients need to adapt to changing market conditions.
