SIX Requirements

The Regulatory Board determines what information needs to be published so that investors can evaluate the characteristics of securities and the quality of issuers. The Directive on Information relating to Corporate Governance (DCG) of SIX, as well as the various circulars and communiqués, provide information on disclosure about Corporate Governance, which includes disclosure around compensation and shareholding programs for members of executive bodies (Board of Directors, Executive Committee, Advisory Board).
