Why Investec?

Fast and efficient

Contingent on the size and complexity of your proposal, you’ll usually receive an underwriting decision in an average of two-and-a-half hours, and same-day pay out. Proposals up to £25k are sent directly through our auto-decisioning engine, where you may receive a decision instantly.


Our solutions can be tailored to your clients’ needs. We can offer VAT deferrals on hire purchase for hard asset, stage payments, seasonal payments, and foreign exchange to support your clients’ asset purchases. Our expertise covers the asset finance, professions and sales aid leasing markets.


You and your clients are at the heart of everything we do. You’ll have a dedicated relationship manager working with you over the long term to identify the deals that best suit your clients’ individual business needs.
