SIX Swiss Exchange Launches Indian Representation

Mumbai - 6 September 2012

SIX Swiss Exchange has signified its intent to grow a footprint in the Indian market by entering into a partnership with T&A Consulting, New Delhi.

The initiative will promote SIX Swiss Exchange as the natural listing venue for Indian corporates looking to access the European investor community.

As a thriving financial centre in the heart of Europe, Switzerland is ideally positioned to be the listing venue of choice for Indian companies. Indian corporates are increasingly keen to tap into the European investor community to generate the capital required to achieve new growth. As a result of its ongoing innovation, commitment to competitiveness and stable economic and political backdrop, Switzerland is home to assets totalling over USD 4,000 billion and is the world leader in cross-border private banking with a market share of close to 30%.

SIX Swiss Exchange is ideally positioned to help corporates in some of India's fastest growing industries gain access to powerful pools of European capital. SIX Swiss Exchange is the leading exchange for life sciences companies in Europe and has strong representation across financial services, consumer goods as well as information and communication technologies.

SIX Swiss Exchange is one of the largest and most liquid exchanges in Europe, with several competitive advantages over other venues. In addition to operating the world’s fastest trading platform, SIX Swiss Exchange facilitates the listing of a broad range of securities, including shares, bonds and global depositary receipts (GDRs). The inclusion into the main (benchmark) indices will lead to high liquidity and financially potent international investors. SIX Swiss Exchange's team of expert advisors work closely with clients offering support and advice throughout the investment process.

Under Swiss law, SIX Swiss Exchange enjoys self-regulatory powers. This enables it to achieve an ideal balance between robust investor protection and a market-driven regulatory environment. This light touch approach also enables companies to list more efficiently on SIX Swiss Exchange than on other venues.

Christian Katz, CEO of SIX Swiss Exchange comments: "Switzerland represents a unique listing opportunity for Indian corporates, combining access to a premium investor base with a regulatory and listing environment that fosters growth. We are confident that our proposition will resonate with Indian corporates and we look forward to growing our presence in this key market".

T&A Consulting will be SIX Swiss Exchange’s official representative in the Indian market, responsible for increasing outreach and driving sales. Tarun Gupta, Co-Founder and CEO, T&A Consulting, commented, “Switzerland is among the world’s leading financial centres, noted for its innovation, stability and security. Its banks have an excellent track record with regards to placement. SIX Swiss Exchange offers access to vast capital reserves and we are pleased to develop India’s links with the international investor community via SIX Swiss Exchange”.
