About PETNET, Inc.

PETNET, Inc. was established on August 12, 1998. Its primary purpose then was to grow the network of Western Union in the Philippines. PETNET’s over 2,500-branch network, composed of company-owned and sub-agent locations, is geared toward the service of Western Union with complementary products such as money changing, bills payment, airline ticketing, cell phone load, and micro-insurance.

Today, PETNET is the largest Western Union agent location network in the country.

In mid-2015, Aboitiz Equity Ventures (AEV) entered as the new majority owner of PETNET, leading to a full transformation and an aggressive branch expansion program. Following this expansion, in April 2016, PETNET changed its brand name to PERA HUB to better describe its portfolio of services and continuously be relevant to its target market and industry.
