Raiffeisen new SSPA member

The Swiss Structured Products Association (SSPA) welcomes Raiffeisen to its ranks as a new member and issuer. The admission of Raiffeisen underscores the ambition of the SSPA to represent the entire value chain in the industry as a broad-based sectoral association. This chain includes issuers, markets, the buy side and partners in equal measure.

Zurich, 6th December 2016. As the leading Swiss retail bank, the Raiffeisen Group is the third force in the Swiss banking market with branches at 977 locations. Raiffeisen offers private individuals and enterprises a comprehensive range of products and services. Within the context of the reorganisation of the structured products unit, Raiffeisen Switzerland acquired the very successful business from Notenstein La Roche along with the membership of the Swiss Structured Products Association.

Claudio Topatigh, Head of Products & Sales at Raiffeisen Switzerland, on the bank’s accession to the SSPA: “On the basis of our strong local roots, we develop optimum banking and financial solutions in dialogue with our clients. In this conjunction, structured products also serve as an innovative investment vehicle that offers attractive potential returns. By joining the SSPA, we are keen to underscore our long-term commitment to the Swiss market for structured products as well as to the Swiss financial centre as a whole.”

SSPA successively expanding into a sectoral association

SSPA represents the interests of the most important market participants, which together cover more than 95 percent of the market volume for structured products in Switzerland. SSPA President Georg von Wattenwyl: “We are delighted to welcome a further key player in the Swiss market, Raiffeisen, to our Association. The inclusion of Raiffeisen broadens our association’s base and will enable us to represent the interests of the entire sector even more effectively.”
