SIX Financial Information celebrates 15 years in Austria

Zurich, Vienna - The Vienna branch of SIX Financial Information celebrates its fifteenth anniversary on 23 December 2013. During this time, the company has established long-term client relationships and partnerships in Austria and the surrounding countries of Central and Eastern Europe. Over the next few years the focus will be on developing the business in the CEE countries.

SIX Financial Information products and services have been successfully distributed from the Vienna office for over 15 years now. During this period, the branch has been successful in gaining major Austrian financial institutions as clients. For example, Österreichische Wertpapierdatenservice GmbH (Austrian Securities Data Service, or ÖWS), which supplies data to 97 percent of the back offices of Austrian banks, has been a client of SIX for over 13 years. 

As the "Gateway to the East", Vienna also has a key role to play as SIX expands into the surrounding countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The range of services offered by SIX is already being used by many important financial institutions in this growth market, including the operator of one of the biggest online finance portals in the Czech Republic and the biggest Slovenian custodian bank.

As Andreas Steiner, Sales Director and Manager of the Vienna office, explains: "This anniversary celebration shows that our office has performed outstandingly over the past 15 years. Our market-specific range of products and services means that we are ideally positioned to expand our activities in Austria as well as in Central and Eastern Europe, and to strengthen our market position further. I look forward to the challenges that the next few years will bring, and would like to thank all our clients for their loyalty."
