Listing of Global Depository Receipts (GDRs) on SIX Swiss Exchange

Global Depository Receipts (or GDRs) are tradable securities that are issued by a bank and represent shares in foreign equity securities that are segregated and deposited in the home country. They enable the (indirect) exercise of the membership and asset rights of the deposited equity securities. The listing of GDRs on SIX Swiss Exchange has been possible since 2007. The regulatory framework for GDRs has been reviewed and amended, and the revised regulatory framework for GDRs entered into force on 25 July 2022. 

SPACs Listings on SIX Swiss Exchange

Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) is a publicly traded shell company established solely for the purpose of acquiring an unlisted operating company (or several companies simultaneously) within a certain time frame. The securities of such a SPAC can now be listed and traded on the Swiss stock exchange. Read the most important facts about SPACs here.

Europe's Leading Exchange for Life Sciences

Switzerland enjoys plentiful life sciences clusters and a strong life science ecosystem which includes big pharma companies, SMEs as well as start-ups, world-leading universities, strong associations and promoters - all supported by a capital-rich finance industry.

This is why the Swiss Stock Exchange is Europe's leading exchange for life sciences companies, representing around one third of the European life sciences free float market capitalization across Europe's major stock exchanges. Listing with us enables companies to efficiently raise the capital they need to make new discoveries and finance the development of their pipeline.

Taking Family Businesses Public

Globally – and at the Swiss Stock Exchange – around 30% of the 20 largest listed companies per main market are family-controlled.

For family businesses, an IPO can be a key route to protecting and growing the company. It can help with succession outside the family when needed, enhance visibility and professionalize the company, while enabling family members to remain as shareholders and in management functions if desired.
