International bond market
In 2017, more than 290 bonds were newly listed on SIX Swiss Exchange, which equates to a nominal value of more than CHF 80 billion.
Over a period of ten years, a total of over CHF 850 billion has been raised.
Approximately 55% of outstanding bonds are from issuers outside Switzerland (excluding issues from the public sector
and supranational organizations). The ten largest countries account for around CHF 345 billion in outstanding bonds, corresponding to about
88% of the total volume.
Despite the low interest rate environment the average maturity of all bonds issued between 2010 and 2017 is approximately seven years.
