SIX SIS is the first regulated CSD to have direct access to SDX, which will increase the accessibility of natively digital CHF-denominated bonds to the wider market. The operational link announced today will enable investors to purchase a digital bond and hold it in SIX SIS.
According to David Hatton, Head Digital Securities at SDX: “This new operational link between SDX CSD and SIX SIS enables digital CHF bonds natively issued on SDX CSD to be held and settled at SIX SIS. This in turn opens future digital bond issuance to the broader CHF investor base, whilst laying the platform for a fully integrated CHF denominated digital bond market.”
