A strong history of rapid growth and a robust framework

Our strong historical performance and rapid growth led to the establishment of a funding platform to leverage the strength of our balance sheet. In 2005, we began issuing debt through PSP Capital, a wholly-owned and fully guaranteed subsidiary. A robust governance framework combined with a conservative approach to borrowing allowed us to attract both domestic and international investors.
