Every financial instrument listed for trading on SIX needs amongst other identifiers a so called valor symbol (a unique value). This is an alphanumeric code consisting of maximally 6 characters. Well known symbols are "ROG", "NESN", etc.

Valor Symbols for Structured Products

Since June 2016 structured products require a symbol with 6 alpha-numeric characters allowing a simple, clearly visible distinction from other asset classes. The symbol must fulfill the following requirements:

  • chosen symbol ends on the specific (combination of) letter(s) dedicated to the respective issuer (see dedicated symbol pools below).
  • chosen symbol is still free and not yet used by a different tradable instrument.
  • chosen symbol does not end on "X" (reserved for XBTR securities).
