Today, SIX Swiss Exchange launched Sponsored Access, providing the global trading community with an additional connectivity option to benefit from the world's fastest and most advanced trading technology.
Sponsored Access offers a new way to enjoy a direct, low-latency connection to the highly liquid and efficient marketplace for Swiss and international securities.
The Sponsored Access is provided by Sponsoring Participants of SIX Swiss Exchange to their Sponsored Users. Sponsoring Participants can effectively risk-manage their Sponsored Access order flow thanks to the Risk Management Controls (RMC) provided by SIX Swiss Exchange. Sponsored Users can connect to SIX Swiss Exchange either directly via co-location or via a third party network provider.
The introduction of Sponsored Access is part of the "Over-the-Exchange"-initiative from SIX Swiss Exchange, with which it is offering attractive new stock exchange services to its broadly diversified customer base. "Sponsored Access offers greater access to our highly efficient marketplace and will result in even better liquidity and more diversified order books", commented Christian Katz, CEO SIX Swiss Exchange.
