For ETF issuers, SIX Swiss Exchange is an attractive growth market. We provide access to assets of a highly capitalized international investor base managed in Switzerland.

Thanks to its respected regulatory standards, political stability and deep liquidity, Switzerland is one of the world’s leading financial centers with CHF 2.4 trillion in funds under management.

Tap into attractive growth potentials – our experts will help you with every step of the admission process.

SIX Swiss Exchange provides issuers with access to 15 recognized market makers. They guarantee fair and transparent pricing, thereby enhancing investor protection. For each ETF traded, there is at least one active market maker.

In addition, the Quote on Demand (QOD) trading service complements the existing ETF lit book – the so-called Quote Driven Market (QDM) – and offers institutional investors the opportunity to issue quote requests directly in a bidding process with the most important, registered liquidity providers in Europe. Requesters may choose between different trading modes, allowing for fully automated or manual execution. All trades are automatically and immediately published by SIX Swiss Exchange and displayed as “Request for Quotes”.

Thanks to one of the world’s most reliable real-time settlement systems, we enable the settlement of transactions via a single technical interface. With our extensive international reach in key emerging and frontier markets (over 50 in total), UCITS and AIFMD friendly service model, competitive pricing and flexible account structures, we are the ideal partner for all your custody needs.

Our stream of market quotes comes from the broadest range of sources. Data is delivered in real-time, intraday, end-of-day and time series formats, regardless of where in the world it originates.

From wealth management to media organizations, our customers have been using SIX for over 90 years to gain a comprehensive view of global markets.

In addition to Switzerland’s flagship indices – SMI, SBI, SPI Multi Premia, and SARON – SIX offers a broad range of Nordic benchmarks as well as a variety of strategic, thematic and customized indices to meet specific client needs, including IBEX 35 in Spain.

As a result, more than 20,000 ETFs, funds and derivatives are associated with our indices, while more than CHF 100 billion in assets are passively linked to a SIX index.

SIX provides you with one of the world’s most comprehensive financial information databases. It seamlessly links all data associated with a company and its securities.
