From the company’s inception as an investment management company in 1998 our group – Prescient Holdings – grew strongly on the back of client trust and word of mouth.
Based on this success and growth it was decided that the financial services company wanted to benefit individual retail investors with our offering and expand internationally. This expansion resulted in the decision for Prescient Holdings to list on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) via a reverse listing into PBT Group (previously Prescient Business Technologies) in 2012.
The listing formed part of a development to further facilitate the continuation of our group’s impressive growth path. The listing provides us with the flexibility needed to capitalise on long-term growth opportunities in financial services, while unlocking the intrinsic value of the business. This in turn benefits our clients.
Listing comes with transparency and corporate governance requirements and lends comfort to our clients. The listing has also provided a valuation platform for our shares to retain and attract valuable employees.
Today, Prescient Holdings has businesses in fund administration, securities trading, wealth management and retail products. Its objective is to build a global financial services group.
PBT Group Limited was listed in 2010 through a reverse listing into the Wooltru cash shell. PBT was established as an Information Technology company in 1998 and remains focused on achieving its vision to be the preferred business intelligence and information management service provider to large national and international clients. It has established a substantial African client base and also diversified into the Middle East and Australia.
All subsidiaries are managed by entrepreneurial teams with equity ownership in Prescient.
