Access to the Swiss Stock Exchange is granted through listing or admission to trading. Following its listing, the issuer (the company issuing the securities) must comply with periodic and event-driven information obligations towards market participants and the public.
Listing, or the approval of securities to exchange trading, occurs upon application by the issuer. The process follows various regulatory standards depending on the security category, listing requirements and accounting standards. The listing application must be submitted by a recognised representative. Bonds and derivatives can be registered and provisionally approved for listing via Internet Based Terms.
Admission to trading
International stocks and bonds that are already listed on a recognised foreign exchange can be admitted to trading on the Swiss Stock Exchange upon application by an exchange participant, without having to go through the full listing process. This simplified procedure is also available to domestic and foreign investment funds in the SIX Swiss Exchange-Sponsored Funds trading segment.
