When PNB first started out in 1978, barely any skyscrapers graced the KL skyline, and unit trusts were a novel concept for most. PNB’s journey has also been the country’s story – from first presenting opportunities for the Bumiputera community to actively participate in the nation’s economy, to then opening up avenues to enhance the wealth of all Malaysians. Over the next four decades, millions of Malaysians put their trust in PNB, enabling it to invest their money in many of the companies which define corporate Malaysia today.

As PNB celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, we feel humbled that our companies have not only grown and evolved to drive the nation’s economic growth, but have also shared their corporate wealth with our unit holders. As we move towards the next 40 years, we are guided by our mission to become a distinctive world-class investment house. Yet, no matter how far we travel, we will always remember our roots- staying true to the core values which have shaped us into what we are today, and our core identity as stewards of the assets entrusted to us by our fellow Malaysians.
