Background of Prescient

  • Prescient is a multinational business whose operations in financial and information management services span several continents.

The two businesses contribute to the diversity of the Group in terms of geography, assets, markets, revenue sources, skills and experience. The two segments have operated alongside one another since 1998 and were brought together when Prescient Limited listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) on 20 August 2012 through a reverse acquisition of PBT. Prescient has a long-standing loyal client base in both segments and a robust business structure to facilitate continued growth. Today, Prescient Limited is a multinational business whose operations span sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, Australia and Asia.

Prescient Shares Growth Driver

  • In a market of consolidation and technical overload, the decision to be product agnostic has proven to be the right one. Not only does it ensure that its clients trust PBT as an objective partner, but it also allows for the constant adjustment of its technology focus based on what it views as the best of breed. At the same time, it also allows for successful exposure to all industries. This especially proved to be a great forecast move for PBT. Customer engagement and retention is no longer possible without live time access to data. PBT acquired the skills and has the experience to capitalise on this by successfully transforming data into business value for its clients.

  • Infrastructure has always been the Achilles heel for Africa. With the introduction of mobile, most of these barriers have been removed and the adoption of technology on a continent with 1.2 billion people has been nothing short of phenomenal. PBT realised the hunger for information in Africa early on, and has made the investment purchases that resulted in a footprint across 22 countries in Africa. PBT has positioned itself exceptionally well to buy in on the double figure growth potential that is forecasted for Africa – growth that is spearheaded by the hunger for data and connectivity.

  • The skills that PBT acquired and developed over the last two decades are of world class standards. This presented an opportunity to compete internationality and has resulted in the opening and successful running of two offshore offices in the highly competitive markets of Australia (Melbourne) and UAE (Dubai). A complement of highly skilled and motivated staff in key areas, complimented by a client-centric and “excellence” culture in delivering services to PBT clients.
