Market Making Sponsored Foreign Shares

Members of SIX Swiss Exchange can submit a request for admission to trading of equity securities of foreign issuers with a primary listing on an exchange recognized by the Regulatory Board to SIX Exchange Regulation. For each security admitted to trading in the Sponsored Foreign Shares segment a Sponsor undertakes the commitment to do market making in order to guarantee liquidity in the market.

The market maker undertakes to comply with the following requirements:

  • To provide bid/ask prices for minimum amounts
  • To avoid prices which exceed the maximum spread

These requirements apply on a monthly basis during 90% of the official trading hours of SIX Swiss Exchange. To ensure high quality, SIX Swiss Exchange monitors every trade for adherence to these requirements.
