The FINANCIAL -- Since 22 December 2016, ProCredit Holding AG & Co. KGaA (ProCredit Holding), the holding company of the international ProCredit group of banks, has been listed on the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse) in Germany.
This marks another milestone in the successful development of ProCredit since its establishment as a banking group in 2003.
With this listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, ProCredit Holding is opening up to investors that can identify with the group’s unique approach to banking and with the ethical corporate mission implemented and lived by the well-trained client advisers in each ProCredit bank.
As a young, modern and highly integrated banking group that is very well established in the banking sectors of the emerging economies in which it operates, the ProCredit group believes in economic development that is in line with its ecological and social criteria. Its focus is on South Eastern and Eastern Europe where it serves as a “Hausbank” for the region’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The group places great value on fostering entrepreneurship by collaborating with formalised, forward-looking SMEs that have sustainable business models.
The listing of ProCredit Holding on the Prime Standard sub-segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange further emphasises ProCredit’s commitment to transparency, a critical pillar which has supported the group along its consistently profitable development path.
The acceptance of ProCredit Holding as a member of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange should above all be good news for the group’s SME clients, whose excellent growth potential shall be better served by ProCredit Holding’s greater access to the capital market.
