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 continues 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.
