Traders can now work with Transaction Network Services (TNS) to access market data and trading services at one of Europe’s largest stock exchanges after the firm became a recognised service provider for the Swiss Stock Exchange.
“We are delighted to welcome TNS as a registered service provider for our exchange,” said Gregor Braun, Head of Sales for Switzerland & Europe, Securities & Exchanges at SIX. “TNS’ reputation for fast, resilient and secure market data services makes it a strong partner for our exchange participants as we continue to target growth. A key strategic aim for SIX Swiss Exchange is to make it easier and more efficient to trade on our markets, and we’re confident that adding TNS to the range of options available will contribute significantly to this.”
“SIX is a valuable addition to our connected financial community of interest,” said Bill Versen, Chief Product Officer at TNS. “As an innovative pillar of the European trading landscape, the Swiss Stock Exchange has developed as a highly liquid and efficient marketplace for Swiss and international securities. It is very rewarding to make this announcement and welcome SIX traders to our community.”
TNS’ high performance network can provide access to market data from over 60 exchanges, ECNs and ATSs globally, as well as from a range of leading vendors.
