SIX Swiss Exchange hosted the successful networking event held for the key players in the Swiss bond market.
The annual SIX Swiss Exchange Bond Party took place on 27 May 2014. Some 115 traders and representatives from the bond segment made their way to "restaurant g27" in Zurich Binz. Ueli Goldener, Head Fixed Income Product Management, welcomed the guests, among whom numbered client traders, market makers and investors, and thanked them for the successful cooperation in the past and current year.
The Bond Party offers a highly regarded platform for business-related discussions as well as for informal exchanges of information between bond traders. Guests also made good use of the opportunity to engage in dialogue withSIX Swiss Exchange representatives. They will have another chance to do so at the upcoming SIX Swiss Exchange Bond Event, which will feature numerous interesting specialist presentations.
Positive development of bond listings
Since the beginning of the year, 138 new CHF Bonds have been listed on SIX Swiss Exchange. This corresponds to an increase of 2.2% over the same period in 2013. However, due to record-low interest rates, turnover in CHF Bonds has been decreasing in the first five months of 2014, by 5.7% to 66.7 bn.
