Swiss Stock Exchange SIX eyes Latin America for expansion, Cinco Dias reports

MADRID (Reuters) – Swiss stock exchange operator SIX is looking at Latin America to expand after it bought the Spanish stock market BME in 2020, Spanish newspaper Cinco Dias reported on Monday citing SIX’s CEO Jos Dijsselhof.

SIX’s top executive said SIX already has projects in Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico, among other countries. “We also analyse potential alliances and growth operations,” Dijsselhof told Cinco Dias.

SIX has completed in mid 2020 the acquisition of BME in an operation that valued the Madrid market operator at 2.8 billion euros.
