Exchange of the Year!

Yesterday, Global Investor/isf organized the ceremony for the Investment Excellence Awards 2014. SIX Swiss Exchange won the title "Exchange of the Year" in the category's inaugural year. Further awards were distributed in the categories Asset Management and Service Providers. A delegation of the Swiss exchange, led by its CEO Christian Katz, was present in London to receive the prestigious award.

The award belongs to the entire staff. Everybody at SIX Swiss Exchange can be very proud of this achievement. I would also like to thank our clients and partners for the good collaboration", Christian Katz commented.

A well-deserved victory

The independent jury of international experts rewarded SIX Swiss Exchange for outstanding achievements in several areas.
