Defining the Future of Stock Exchanges

Defining the Future of Stock Exchanges

The Future of Finance is Now

The Swiss Stock Exchange. Where Innovation Matters.

By definition, infrastructure is designed for stability. For strength. For reliability. And for trust. Any rapid moves risk jeopardizing its credibility and – sometimes – the very essence of the value it brings. This is where we at the Swiss Stock Exchange believe in challenging the status quo.  And we do it well.

By recognizing the pressures our clients are under. Pressures to adapt to ever more uncertain environments. To adopt ever new technologies. And to face down seemingly ever growing competition. This is why we never cease to innovate across all our offerings. Across all of our business lines. 

It is why we never stop exploring new ground. And never stop pushing the boundaries of our thinking until we get to a breakthrough. Like, for example, the SIX Digital Exchange, where we are building the world’s digital market infrastructure. 

Because here, at the Swiss Stock Exchange, The Future is always present.

True Transformers. The Future of Switzerland?

Capital markets and infrastructures have been under pressure for some time now to transform their business models and embrace new technologies. 2020 demonstrated how the financial industry is able to react quickly to changing environments and the same needs to happen now with regards to the fast-changing technology dynamics that are reshaping capital markets.

The Swiss Stock Exchange is committed to innovation and is pioneering some of the biggest digital initiatives in capital markets. This is why we constantly challenge ourselves. Constantly question ourselves: What will financial marketplaces look like in the future? What role will Switzerland play in them? What future scenarios are possible?

Together with W.I.R.E. – a think tank associated with Zurich’s ETH university – the Swiss Stock Exchange has developed potential theses, scenarios and action areas for Switzerland’s future financial marketplace. The key findings have been published in a book – “True Transformers.” – which is now available for sale (in German only).
