Horizon Corporate Finance being a part of Horizon Group, provides financial consulting services since 1996.
The Group's first company was created at the initiative of JSC Gazprom. A team of highly qualified experts was employed to establish and develop an organized market for Gazprom's stock. As a result Gazprom market capitalization grew to a level that allowed Gazprom to become one of the world's largest enterprises already in 1997. The Group's experts took part in the launch of JSC Gazprom shares trading on national stock exchanges, in the issue of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) and ADR listing on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). Global depository receipts (GRRs) of JSC Gazprom are included in the quotation list of Singapore Exchange (SGX). Gazprom's depository receipts became the first Russian securities listed on LSE in 1996 as well as on SGX in 2014.
