ZICO Holdings Inc, Managing Director Chew Seng Kok spoke to Malaysian business and financial publication, The Edge Weekly, to share his views on the newly established Leading Entrepreneur Accelerator Platform (LEAP) market on Bursa Malaysia and ZICO’s increased focus on helping Malaysian SMEs develop in ASEAN.
The LEAP market provides an alternative platform for SMEs with high growth potential to raise capital from high-net worth investors. Chew Seng Kok enthused about the recently established market and believes that ZICO is well placed to serve as the connective tissue for SME’s to grow and expand in ASEAN.
“We are going to be the connecting bridge between Malaysian SMEs and the regional markets. What is exciting is that Malaysian SMEs want to export their products and services, but finding partners is hard. We are going to help them.”
With 17 offices located throughout all 10 ASEAN countries, ZICO leverages on a team of 700 staff including 400 consultants and legal professionals to provide legal, advisory and transactional services that are geared towards helping clients create and secure business opportunities.
ZICO Holdings’ Malaysian subsidiary ZICO Capital Sdn Bhd (ZiCap Malaysia) has also just been given a capital market services (CMS) licence by the Securities Commission of Malaysia with plans in the pipeline to secure a LEAP market licence from the SC as well.
