The United Nations mentions, in 2050 90% of the world’s population will live outside Europe and North America. This, and the ambition to be even closer to our existing customers in the region combined with the future client needs such as proximity, trust, security, sustainability and the continued growth of Asia, were among others, factors why SIX has established a fully capitalized presence in Singapore in June last year.

As Swiss and Spanish financial market infrastructure offering a full range of securities services across the entire value chain for clients in over 50 markets across the globe we stand for security and trust.

Approval from the Monetary Authority of Singapore

In February this year we were very delighted having received the approval from the Monetary Authority of Singapore to provide custodial services. This enables SIX not only to provide its sophisticated and exclusive services to regulated institutional investors in Singapore, it also allows SIX to provide operational onsite support which is a must for demanding clients with discerning customers. Together with presences in other regions it leads to the opportunity to serve clients almost around the clock.

For those who are not yet convinced that SIX can help you better serve your Asian customers, please find another decisive argument below.

European Structured Products

Acting as the Swiss and Spanish Central Security Depositary (CSD) and having unique market access models especially in Europe we can ensure a same day delivery of the underlying securities or cash of a European Structured Product. This permits the Asian beneficial owner to reinvest same day. The only necessary step is to have a direct connection to SIX.
