What does the extension of "equivalence" mean for the Swiss stock exchange run by SIX?
The European Commission decided on Thursday, 20 December 2018, to offer Switzerland six additional months to
agree on a new treaty that will govern the countrys future relations with the European Union (EU).
This allows the Swiss stock exchange run by SIX to maintain access to EU clients until the end of June 2019
under a temporary extension of the equivalence regime that permits EU clients to continue accessing the
Swiss market locally.
We would like to invite you to watch the following hot-off-the-press filmed interview with Tomas Kindler,
Head Business Management & Services, Member of the Management Committee, Securities & Exchanges,
SIX, who explains the impact of the current situation on the Swiss stock exchange and the business of SIX.
