Christian Katz, CEO of SIX Swiss Exchange and Member of the Group Executive Board of SIX, has become the first
Swiss national to be elected president by the General Assembly of the Federation of European
Securities Exchanges (FESE).
Christian Katz thanked FESE for his appointment and is looking forward to his future tasks:
"The European capital markets face big challenges. If we, as stock exchange and infrastructure
providers, are to strengthen them further in an environment of rapidly increasing regulatory requirements,
the structures must be changed carefully and prudently. We want to tackle this in close collaboration
with the regulators and representatives of the financial sector."
FESE represents 41 regulated exchanges in 30 European
countries. Its objectives are to foster the global competitiveness of European exchanges and to reinforce
the key importance of the exchanges for the European and global economy.
Strong global network
Urs Rüegsegger, Group CEO SIX, congratulated Christian Katz on his appointment, which is not only
reflecting his outstanding record as CEO of SIX Swiss Exchange, but also the significance of
SIX as a globally active company
with international networks. In the previous year, FESE already appointed a representative of SIX Swiss Exchange
by electing Ian Cornwall as new
Chair of its Management Committee.
