CONNEXOR goes global

SIX Swiss Exchange enters strategic partnership with Contineo, a leading trading platform for Structured Products in Asia.

Joining the consortium of Contineo as a strategic partner and investor is a first major step towards the internationalization of the CONNEXOR service[pdf]. The geographic expansion is intended to standardize processes along the value chain and the lifecycle management of Structured Products internationally. Already in the first half of 2018, CONNEXOR's high-performance life cycle management infrastructure will be provided to the Asian market. This allows shareholders and clients of SIX Swiss Exchange to utilize their established set-ups also outside of Europe and thereby benefit from synergies and economies of scale. In return, Contineo's network of issuers, private banks and wealth management firms benefit from the long established infrastructure experience of SIX in order to grow the Asian market for Structured Products.

"Today, we are very proud to announce the internationalization of CONNEXOR and happy to see that more market participants around the world will enjoy the efficiency gains that our platform has already provided reliably to the Swiss marketplace", commented Chris Landis, Division CEO SIX Swiss Exchange.

Contineo is a Hong Kong based and industry supported, open messaging network that brings private banks and wealth management firms together with issuers of Structured Products. Contineo was launched in 2015 with the support of market participants in the Asian region. Besides SIX, its current shareholders include AG Delta, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, HSBC, and Societe Generale.

Mark Munoz, CEO of Contineo, explained: "This new partnership confirms our core principals of operating an open and shared network that benefits all financial institutions by reducing cost and increasing efficiency."

Unique. Just like our platform

CONNEXOR is a high-performance infrastructure for financial product data and enables fully automated, cost-efficient management of reference data. As the central link between market participants, CONNEXOR offers a range of services over the entire life cycle of a financial instrument and supports the fulfillment of regulatory obligations such as IRS 871(m) or MiFID II.

The centralized, standardized collection and maintenance of product data simplifies workflows and reduces the number of interfaces. As a result, issuers, data vendors and data recipients thus benefit from substantial efficiency advantages with this globally unique data standard.
