About PNB

PNB incorporated on 17 March 1978, PNB was conceived as a pivotal instrument of the Government's New Economic Policy to promote share ownership in the corporate sector among the Bumiputera (son of the soil), and to develop opportunities for deserving Bumiputera professionals to participate in the creation and management of wealth.

PNB has emerged as the country's premier investment institution. As an investment vehicle for the Yayasan Pelaburan Bumiputra (YPB), the core function of PNB is to evaluate, select and acquire a sound portfolio of shares in limited companies with growth potential. Being an organisation that specialises in investment, PNB in essence acts as a warehouse, whereby shareholdings in these limited companies are placed in trust funds and sold to unit holders in the form of smaller units.
