PGC (POPCRU GROUP OF COMPANIES) is a trusted, credible and diversified Investment Group that forms part of the investment wing of the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU). It is uniquely established to generate and invest financial capital on behalf of the approximately 150 000 (one hundred and fifty thousand) POPCRU Membership through its operations.
Our business structure and operating principal is unique as we generate our own funding (without utilising union membership fees) and our business services extend beyond the POPCRU membership , thus though PGC roots are within organised labour, our business operations and investment initiatives have no boundaries. The Group has been operational since 1997 and has steadily accomplished itself since, though a number of strategic acquisitions. See PGC Group for more information.
