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
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.
