1st Money Market Paper listed on SIX Swiss Exchange
As of today, the first Money Market Paper can be traded on the Swiss stock exchange.
With this admission, SIX Swiss Exchange is expanding its offering in the bond segment.
Last year, SIX Swiss Exchange reduced the issuing and listing fees for Bonds[pdf]
with a duration not exceeding one year to maturity, thus increasing its attractiveness as a listing location
for Money Market Papers. The new offering aroused the interest of issuers and is now used with the
listing of the first Money Market Paper on the Swiss stock exchange.
Ueli Goldener, Head Fixed Income Product Management at SIX Swiss Exchange, is pleased that the
new offering is appreciated by the customers: "Thanks to the close collaboration with our customers,
we have been able to react flexibly to new market needs and find a pragmatic solution for the
listing of Money Market Papers, which is now actively used."
