Phoenix Precious Metals (PPM) DMCC was formed in 2015 by Yacoub Sidya, a veteran within the precious minerals industry. PPM acts as a holding company for multiple organisations which he has founded around the World. Headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, PPM has grown into a leading gold security, trading, exploration and extraction company in the region.
Having commenced as a security provider to the gold industry in 2005, MSS Security (part of the PPM Group) has grown to become the leading provider of specialist high value security and transport services in Africa. Now the largest subcontractor to Brinks in the region, a logical transition was made in 2015 into gold trading and subsequently gold exploration under the Phoenix Precious Metals brand.
