“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
The PIC is wholly owned by the South African Government, with the Minister of Finance as shareholder representative. The PIC was corporatised on 1 April 2005 in accordance with the Public Investment Corporation Act, 2004.
Corporatisation has positioned PIC to structure its investment activities and operations in a manner comparable to that of private sector investment managers. Apart from pursuing Financial Services Board (FSB)-compliant mandates, we benchmark our investment performance against market-driven indices, enabling our clients and shareholders to compare PIC’s returns to other local market leaders.
