SIX Swiss Exchange marks 15th anniversary of ETF segment


SIX Swiss Exchange is marking the 15th anniversary of the launch of its exchange traded fund segment by publishing 15 theories on the future development of the ETF segment.

More than 1,000 ETFs from 20 product providers are now tradable on SIX Swiss Exchange, which in the first eight months of 2015, reported trading turnover in excess of CHF70 billion. 

SIX Swiss Exchange was one of the first European exchanges to open an ETF segment in September 2000, which has since exhibited strong growth. Over the past 15 years, equity ETFs have been joined by asset classes such as government and corporate bond, money market, commodity and real estate ETFs. ETF products also encompass regions, countries, sectors, investment strategies and themes. Their variety and number have grown continuously as a consequence of various innovations. In February 2015, the range of ETFs on offer on SIX Swiss Exchange reached the 1,000 mark, meaning that the ETF segment was making a major contribution to the diversification of the range of tradable securities on SIX Swiss Exchange.

In March and June, SIX Swiss Exchange welcomed two new issuers in the form of WisdomTree and Van Eck Global Investments. Since the end of August 2015, investors have been able to trade in excess of 1,100 products from 20 providers, for which liquidity is provided by 23 official market makers.

Trading turnover has also increased virtually unchecked, exceeding the CHF70 billion mark in the first eight months of 2015, thereby making possible the breaking of the 2011 record of a sound CHF 100 billion by year-end. Depending on trading activity on SIX Swiss Exchange, training turnover in ETFs accounts for 10 per cent-15 per cent of equity turnover.
