VCI Global Limited To Serve As Exclusive Adviser To Horizon Globex GmbH

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, May 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VCI Global Limited (NASDAQ: VCIG) (“VCI Global”, or the “Company”) has been engaged by Horizon Globex GmbH, and its affiliates, to provide advisory services on selected financial consultancy related services where the terms were formalised in a marketing and referral agreement signed between the two parties.

VCI Global, in its appointed role, will introduce and refer entities, including non-fungible token (NFT) clients, that wish to list on Upstream. A fully regulated global stock exchange for digital securities and NFTs, Upstream, being a revolutionary trading app, enables one to dual list their respective shares on its platform. This role is on top of the provision of the standard advisory services on capital markets, exchange listings, client acquisitions and evaluating appropriate opportunities which are normally provided for by advisory firms.

In its advisory capacity, VCI Global shall also be granted territorial exclusivity by Horizon Globex GmbH for Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia, for a period of six months from the date of the agreement.

“To remain as a leading advisory firm with vast experience in the global financial market, the dynamism of the fast evolving financial services world compels us to be at our best, to meet the demanding needs of global investors. Thus, we strongly believe the provision of vehicles for dual listing like Upstream to reach under-tapped markets is nothing short of mandatory,” said Dato’ Victor Hoo, Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of VCI Global.
