On 5 July 1930, Ticker AG was founded by a consortium of Swiss banks and was tasked with transmitting the rates of Zurich’s stock exchange with the stock ticker.
Ticker AG introduced the world’s first stock exchange television in 1961 as part of the technological progress and global economic growth of the time. The ongoing technological advances led Telekurs (formerly Ticker AG) to launch Investdata, the first display system for online financial information, in 1975. This enabled clients to access financial information from Telekurs directly at their terminals. The database at that time contained 95,000 securities.
Globalization caused Telekurs to expand internationally in 1986 and open its first external locations in Germany (1986), Amsterdam, Luxembourg, and New York (1987).
In 2007, the Telekurs Group took over the financial information operations of the French-based Fininfo Group. The Telekurs Group, SWX Swiss Exchange, and SIS SEGAInterSettle AG merged in 2008 to form the SIX Group. The aim of the merger was to strengthen the company’s market power. Telekurs Financial was renamed to SIX Telekurs and expanded its global presence from 16 locations to 23.
The business began operating under the name SIX Financial Information in 2012.
