Who We Are

Our Story

The science in the art

Steadfast certainty in an uncertain world.

The Rhino, a noble animal with undoubted presence, albeit becoming quite rare, is stubborn and grounded to earth, a creature of substance, stamina, solidity and power. This is the same conviction and substance that sits behind Prescient’s investment and business beliefs, remaining grounded to what we know works. This allows Prescient to remain surefooted and steadfast in any uncertainty, saying what we do and doing what we say.

 

 

Slow and steady wins the race.

The Tortoise, with its protective shell is known for its wisdom and longevity – slow, steady and methodically wins the race. Prescient aims to create businesses and philosophies that will remain relevant, protect the value of assets and deliver what clients need, now and into the future. The wisdom and patience to stick to what we know, staying in the race when others falter and being precise and consistent is core to what we do.

 

 

When others zig and zag, we stay in formation.

Geese are gifted navigators, known for their loyalty, determination, and teamwork. They fly in formation and as one falls back, the next is ready to take its place, always reaching the final destination. Prescient follows a team approach with clear direction and methodologies to increase certainty for ourselves and our clients. Our business is based on trust and staying true to course even in the most turbulent times.

 

 

This approach has led Prescient, from its humble beginnings as an investment manager and stockbroker, to become a multinational business spanning sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, and Asia.

Over the years, Prescient has evolved into a partnership of people and companies servicing a broad range of clients across a number of disciplines around the world. Prescient has a long-standing loyal client base and a robust business structure to facilitate continued growth.

Our core client-centric philosophy, approach, and process combined with maintaining a strong entrepreneurial spirit and ensuring we continue to be competitive has resulted in substantial growth of the business and meeting our objective to be a world player. It has also enabled our clients and the industry to innovate and grow.

 

We embrace a business philosophy that creates simplicity and certainty in an uncertain world.

 

On visiting our various offices around the world you will find an unexpected environment that is quiet, contained and not the least bit flashy. It’s a quiet confidence that comes from an over-riding way of thinking and working that started on day one of Prescient opening its doors.

It’s a sense of knowing based on our proven and tested methodologies, processes and infrastructure that have consistently delivered excellent services and results for our clients.
