About Listing, Trading and Post-Trading Solutions from SIX
SIX supports the Swiss financial center and, in turn, the whole Swiss economy. Our exchange-related core functions are listing, trading and regulation. Our exchange is the ideal listing venue for companies of any origin, size and industry, and we offer outstanding liquidity for trading Swiss securities.
We bring companies from all over the world together with international investors and trading participants. As a central marketplace for securities, we help ensure that securities are priced efficiently and capital is deployed where it generates the best financial return.
Thanks to our system of self-regulation, we have in place a particularly market-friendly framework for listing and trading both Swiss and foreign equities, bonds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), exchange-traded products (ETPs), funds and structured products.
A major feature of and key success factor underpinning our exchange is the efficient, secure and, above all, independent post-trade infrastructure that SIX has in place. It ensures that investors receive the securities they have actually bought on the exchange, while counterparties receive the proceeds from the securities they have sold.
As a leading provider of post-trade services, we develop value-creating services that help our clients reduce their operational complexity, risks and costs. This allows them to concentrate fully on their core business activities and strengths. This fits perfectly with our client promise: “We exist to save you money. Or make you money.”
