The latest issue of the "Bonds Quarterly Statistics" report looks at the performance
of SIX Swiss Exchange's Bonds segment in the third quarter of 2017.
Today, SIX Swiss Exchange today published the latest edition of its
Bonds Quarterly Statistics[pdf].
The CHF Bonds segment turned over CHF 29.3 billion in the third quarter of 2017, a decrease of
4.1% compared to the previous quarter, but an increase of
9.4% compared to the third quarter in the previous year.
Positive trend in Domestic Bonds continues
The decrease in CHF Bonds is mainly attributed to a lower turnover in the third quarter in sectors Schweizerische
Eidgenossenschaft, Pfandbriefen and Foreign CHF Bonds. While the quarterly turnover of Domestic CHF Bonds increased
by 12.8% compared to the previous quarter, the turnover in Foreign CHF Bonds decreased
by 7.6% to CHF 10.7 billion. In sum, the turnover in CHF Bonds outperformed last year's
turnover due to a relatively large turnover in August and September.
The turnover in Non-CHF Bonds segment was CHF 5.1 billion in the third quarter of 2017. Following the relatively large
turnover in the 1st and 2nd quarter of 2017, the turnover in Non-CHF Bonds decreased and recorded
7.5% lower in the 3rd quarter of 2017 compared to last year.
