Valour Wins Financial News’ Startup of the Year

TORONTO, Ontario, July 6, 2022 -- Valour Inc. (the “Company” or “Valour”) (NEO: DEFI) (GR: RMJ.F) (OTC: DEFTF), a technology company bridging the gap between traditional capital markets and decentralised finance, announced today that it was awarded Startup of the Year at the Excellence in Trading & Tech Awards hosted by Financial News.

“We are honoured to be recognized by Financial News,” said Russell Starr, CEO at Valour. “This award speaks to both Valour’s dynamic product offerings and our team’s deep expertise with digital assets. We are proud to be the only publicly traded company solely focused on providing retail and institutional investors unparalleled access to diversified, regulated Web3 and DeFi protocols.”

Financial News’ award series celebrates the companies and individuals that stand out for the strength of their businesses in Europe. The shortlist was decided by a panel of FN editorial staff after several weeks of research, including scrutinising entries where received and canvassing third-party market participants for their views. The judges then met to discuss the shortlists and cast confidential votes.

“At Valour, we are optimistic about the future of digital assets in Europe and beyond,” continued Mr. Starr. “In recognizing us for our business achievements, the Financial News clearly feels the same. In the past year, we have been able to launch seven different digital asset ETPs for retail and institutional investors to access the long-term benefits of DeFi. Additionally, as a result of our superior foresight and technical expertise, Valour ETPs continue to generate net inflows in June, in spite of the bear market. We are confident we can accelerate our growth when macroeconomic conditions turn in our favour.”
