System Resilience

Both European and Swiss regulation require trading venues to have effective systems, procedures and arrangements in place to ensure its trading systems are resilient, have sufficient capacity to deal with peak order and message volumes and can handle conditions of severe market stress.

European regulation requires, in addition, each trading venue to produce regular quantitative benchmarks for self-assessment purposes.

Our approach

To ensure system resilience both SIX Swiss Exchange and SIX Corporate Bonds already have several pre-defined trading controls in place which would automatically kick in when triggered. No changes are needed to be compliant with European and Swiss law.
