Co-location: the fastest connection to our exchange

Co-location services of SIX Swiss Exchange offer participants many advantages: faster execution, trading irrespective of distance, customizable infrastructure and choice of preferred supplier, cost efficiency and fast on-boarding.

With a co-location access, participants can reduce latency for equity trading to just 14 microseconds and fully enjoy the outstanding performance of the X-stream INET trading technology. SIX Swiss Exchange offers co-location services in partnership with Equinix.

By installing their technical equipment in the Equinix data center in Zurich next to the SWXess trading engine, all participants can enjoy the same superior latency regardless of their geographical location. more
