As the reference market for Swiss securities, SIX Swiss Exchange offers trading participants outstanding order book quality and liquidity. Today, its unique blend of Swiss and international trading participants is enhanced with the arrival of the SSW-Trading GmbH. Our website provides an overview of all 94 participants.

Meeting the Demands of Today’s Global Trading Community
The SWXess Trading Platform of SIX Swiss Exchange runs on X-stream INET technology. Underpinned by a common infrastructure that guarantees its stability, it is built as a series of loosely coupled and self-contained components. This modularity offers a fully integrated environment for all trading activities and gives participants the flexibility to select the ideal setup for their needs.
SSW-Trading GmbH provides liquidity in the form of tens of thousands of shares and ETFs. Based in Germany, it operates globally across the world’s stock exchanges and market venues. Since 2004 they have been trading with self-developed algorithms that take decisions on whether to buy or sell financial instruments. SSW-Trading GmbH holds the BaFin license for high-frequency trading on EEA exchanges according to MiFID II.
Benefit from Highly Liquid and Efficient Trading
Switzerland is home to an attractive share universe of over 250 companies, including three of the five biggest in Europe. To make trading in these shares more attractive, SIX Swiss Exchange never ceases to innovate and introduce new services. A prime example is SwissAtMid: introduced five years ago, the Swiss stock exchange’s own non-displayed pool has established itself as the main source of block liquidity in Swiss shares and delivered over CHF100 million in price improvement value to market participants. With the recent introduction of a Block Order trading solution, SIX Swiss Exchange provides enhanced access to its unique liquidity in Swiss equities.
