SIX Swiss Exchange adds SGD as ETF listing and trading currency

SIX Swiss Exchange has added the Singapore dollar (SGD) as a currency option for ETF listings and trading.

ETF providers active on the exchange now have the option to list their products in the Singaporean currency, in addition to the Swiss franc, euro, US dollar, pound sterling, Japanese yen, Canadian dollar and Australian dollar.

The exchange’s multi-currency capability allows ETF providers to more effectively market their products to overseas investors who may prefer to trade in their local base currency.

Alain Picard, Head Product Management at SIX Swiss Exchange, said: “SIX Swiss Exchange is the first stock exchange in Europe to offer SGD as a listing and trading currency for ETFs. By continuously extending our selection of currencies, we allow issuers to make their products more attractive to investors”.

UBS, one of Europe’s largest ETF providers, has been the first to capitalise on the development with the launch of five new equity ETFs, linked to MSCI indices, available for trading in currency. They are:

UBS ETF MSCI EMU 100% hedged to SGD UCITS ETF (SGD) A-acc
UBS ETF MSCI United Kingdom 100% hedged to SGD UCITS A-acc
UBS ETF MSCI Japan 100% hedged to SGD UCITS ETF (SGD) A-acc
UBS ETF MSCI Canada 100% hedged to SGD UCITS ETF (SGD) A-acc
UBS ETF MSCI Switzerland 20/35 100% hedged to SGD UCITS A-acc

Currently, there are 942 ETFs listed on SIX Swiss Exchange.
