In recent years, PHC has implemented a strategic shift designed to maximize shareholder value. Having begun operations with a clear focus on the provision of financial services in equity capital markets, the Group has evolved into one of Egypt’s largest business conglomerates, with investments across a wide range of growth industries.

Such restructuring and consolidation has amplified the true value of Pioneers’ investments, bringing the Group’s constituent growth drivers into clearer focus for ease of analysis.
Consolidate – By acquiring minority interests in key subsidiaries, PHC has opportunistically constructed a lucrative investment portfolio, taking advantage of these subsidiaries’ extremely compelling stock market valuations.
Expand - PHC constantly seeks profitable opportunities to invest across various sectors, leveraging the Egyptian market’s improving macro fundamentals. Over recent years the company has developed valuable experience of comprehensive restructuring operations, significantly reducing turnaround times from the moment of acquisition.
