PRAESIDIUM GLOBAL

About Us

Praesidium Global was founded on the bedrock of an abundance mindset and forged from the timeless values of honour, integrity and contribution, which we live by and measure ourselves against, every day!

Praesidium’s Private Placement was born from the ashes of frustration and disillusionment of a former Swiss Bank Trader, who chose to take a stand against the imbalances proliferating the investment world, by breaking away from industry convention to create a revolutionary investment product that delivers unconventional returns.

It’s a modern-day David and Goliath tale and since the Private Placement’s inception in 2008, it’s been delivering exceptional growth for our clients, year after year, without exception… changing people’s financial fortunes… changing people’s lives.

Today, we have an amazing team of passionate and experienced professionals and partners, who are dedicated to the Cause, and who constantly go the extra mile to serve the needs and best interests of our clients all over the world.

We don’t just talk about being client-centric, we’ve taken this ideal to a whole new level… and implemented it!
