About This Service

ETPs are secured, bearer debt securities that do not earn interest. They replicate the performance of an underlying asset on an unchanged or leveraged basis. These financial products are not investment funds and thus not governed by the Swiss Federal Act on Collective Investment Schemes (CISA), but rather exclusively by SER (SIX Exchange Regulation). In most cases, the collateral (securities or precious metals) is deposited with a third party. The underlying assets are usually single commodities, but may also be baskets, indices or other asset classes.

Our Product Universe

There are 31 ETPs on the exchange. The majority are UCITS products on single commodities such as industrial metals, cocoa, coffee, corn, cotton, grains, soybeans, sugar or wheat. By trading these products, investors get access to UCITS conform investment on single underlying.

Market Making

Liquidity in the market is underpinned by 6 specialist market makers that:

  • Provide bid/ask prices for minimum amounts
  • Avoid prices which exceed the maximum spread
  • Are present in the order book during official trading hours

These requirements vary according to the asset class and apply on a monthly basis. To ensure adherence, every trade is monitored.
