Valereum Technology Partnership with Securities Trading Technology Mauritius (STT)

Valereum Plc (AQSE: VLRM), the Gibraltar technology group, is pleased to announce that Valereum and Securities Trading Technology (Mauritius) Ltd ("STT") have entered into a strategic partnership to jointly develop Valereum's core technology infrastructure - "The Bridge" Digital FMI (Financial Market Infrastructure). STT will provide continued support and development from their extensive in-house expertise within capital markets technology, with a goal to commercialise the combined technologies of STT and Valereum, for future white label solutions and launches of VLRM marketplaces to showcase the innovative advantages of "The Bridge"'.


Earlier in the year VLRM set out its vision to develop transformational innovative technology solutions to financial market participants to provide end-to-end digital securities lifecycle infrastructure.


The partnership with STT will allow Valereum:

●     to complete the final stages of the V1 Bridge Digital FMI, alongside a robust testing programme;

●     the on-going development of future roll-outs alongside required updates, upgrades and enhancements;

●     the parties combining their respective resources and skills connections and outreach in pursuit of commercialising The Bridge Digital FMI, through joint licensing opportunities.


The strategic partnership facilitates the two companies' plan to actively advance into the digital securities space and reform the current legacy trading model by utilising blockchain technology.


Valereum seeks to build on the considerable work completed by the recently acquired GATENet, that designed its proprietary Digital FMI to provide end-to-end digital securities lifecycle infrastructure from issuance, listing, trading to settlement, for securities, fiat, and digital assets, to reduce costs and increase efficiencies for all issuers, investors, and market participants everywhere.

STT will integrate Valereum's Bridge's Digital FMI with its core products to enhance its features and provide a unique offering to all financial market participants.
