The service launch will enable clients to settle and hold Brazilian securities in the Brazilian market via Six Sis’ local custodian Citibank in Sao Paulo.

With over CHF1 trillion of assets in custody outside of Switzerland, this expansion underscores our continuing commitment to the increasing demands of our clients as they further internationalize their business.”
