Why Register to Deal Pool

Deal Pool Has Reached a New Milestone

A Unique Network for Issuers, Syndicate Banks & Investors

Deal Pool was developed by SIX Swiss Exchange in cooperation with the leading syndicate banks in Switzerland and is supported by a broad and established network that links the sell-side with the buy-side in a digital way. This facilitates a successful placement of new issues and an efficient capital raising process.

Syndicate Banks benefit from efficiency gains such as faster allocations by using the FIX interface; an XML Upload interface is also available via the Deal Pool GUI.

Registered investors receive important information related to new issues in a clearly structured and standardized format from a central source instead of multiple channels – so they will not be missing out on any new issue on the Swiss stock exchange.

Investors can subscribe and adjust their subscription in a very simple way via their GUI. With direct access to the primary market platform, each gets his own investor view with a 10 year track record that offers an enriched archive and in-depth analysis possibilities based on the available data.

Introducing the Deal Pool Investor User Interface

The introduction of Deal Pool has standardized, centralized and modernized the dissemination of information about bond emissions. As of October 2021, Deal Pool offers additional functionalities such as placing orders and receiving allocation for new issues of Swiss-franc bonds directly via the web-based portal. Discover the new functionalities in the following video.
