Benefits of Participation

Participants of SIX Swiss Exchange enjoy the following benefits:

  • High liquidity
    High liquidity guaranteed as all orders are concentrated within a single order book.
  • World-class Stock Exchange Trading
    With X-stream INET by Nasdaq OMX, the fastest and most advanced trading technology for equities, you benefit from a latency of 14 microseconds.
  • Fair and transparent pricing
    Best-price execution and prioritisation by time ensure that pricing is fair and transparent.
  • Low costs
    Trading and clearing costs are low. Integrated clearing and settlement processes offer participants the benefit of major cost-cutting potential. This is because trades routed via the central order book trigger an automatic instruction to the clearing and settlement organisations.
  • Transmission to financial data providers
    Trade data, by data type, are automatically communicated via SIX Exfeed Ltd to data vendors.
  • Individually tailored access system
    SWXess supports a variety of different order types and order validities for on order book trading as well as functionalities for the reporting of off order book trades. Participants can tailor their trading model to their individual needs.
  • Fast response times and high system availability
    SWXess operates under high-quality, cutting-edge technical and organisational standards. As a result, system availability is high and response times are fast, making SWX Swiss Exchange one of the world's most technologically advanced securities exchanges.

    SWXess comprises a range of independent, interlinked service components, each with a standard interface to participants. The components have a common infrastructure but are based on different proprietary technologies. One of the key advantages of SWXess is that every component has been fine-tuned to perform a specific task and can therefore execute it at top speed and efficiency. As a result, system availability is high and response times are fast.
