- Valour sets another record in net sales of 1 million Solana units on January 13, 2023
TORONTO, Jan. 22, 2023 /CNW/ – Valour Inc. (the “Company” or “Valour“) (NEO: DEFI) (GR: MB9) (OTC: DEFTF), is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Valour Inc. (Cayman) (“Valour Cayman“) has increased its Assets Under Management (“AUM“) since the beginning of the year by 44% to US$112 million. Valour is a technology company and the first and only publicly traded company that bridges the gap between traditional capital markets, Web3 and decentralized finance.
With the resurgence of Bitcoin and the crypto market, Valour Cayman’s weekly turnover and net weekly inflows have also seen an uptick in activity. Valour Cayman’s Solana (SOL) exchange traded product (“ETP”) reached record net sales of 1 million units on January 13, 2023. Valour Cayman has also seen net inflows increase every day of the last week. Average weekly turnover in the new year increased 300% compared to Q4 2022 turnover. Assuming continued price appreciation and market interest Valour anticipates AUM to grow exponentially.
“We are thrilled to see such strong growth in our AUM and ETP sales,” said Olivier Roussy Newton, Chief Executive Officer of Valour. “This is a clear indication that our products are resonating with investors and we are clearly on track to beat our average Q4 monthly income if prices stay at current levels. With the approval of our SPV we also anticipate launching numerous new and innovative products shortly”.
Valour Cayman offers fully hedged digital asset ETPs with low to zero management fees, with product listings across European exchanges, banks and broker platforms. Valour Cayman’s existing product range includes Valour Uniswap (UNI), Cardano (ADA), Polkadot (DOT), Solana (SOL), Avalanche (AVAX), Cosmos (ATOM), Binance (BNB), Enjin (ENJ), Valour Bitcoin Carbon Neutral, and Valour Digital Asset Basket 10 (VDAB10) ETPs with low management fees. Valour Cayman’s flagship products are Bitcoin Zero and Ethereum Zero, the first fully hedged, passive investment products with Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) as underlyings which are completely fee free.
On January 19, 2023, Genesis Global Capital LLC (“Genesis“) and its group companies filed for bankruptcy protection in the US and listed Valour as a creditor. Valour clarifies that Valour Cayman, its wholly-owned subsidiary, is a borrower of funds under a master loan agreement with Genesis dated January 22, 2022. The loan amount borrowed by Valour Cayman under the loan agreement is US$6 million which is collateralised. Valour currently has no reason to believe that the aforementioned situation will render the loan agreement invalid.
