About the Switching Service

 

The Switching Service is a free service that lets you switch your account or your payments from one bank or building society to Investec in 12 working days. The Switching Service is available where your old bank is not a member of the Current Account Switch Service.

Please note: In order to switch, you must have an Investec Voyage or Private bank account.

There are two types of switches available, a Full Account Switch or a Partial Account Switch.
