What does entrepreneurship mean to us?
At the age of 12, Investec CEO Fani Titi was about to drop out of school to become a farm labourer, until fate stepped in. His remarkable journey took him from the Free State to the hallowed halls of the University of Berkeley, California and back to South Africa where he became a captain of industry and Investec’s group chief executive.
A bank and wealth manager created by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs. We understand that as a business owner or an entrepreneur, your circumstances can be demanding and unconventional. You want to speak to someone who appreciates this and ‘gets you’. As a founder-managed business, the spirit of entrepreneurship is in our DNA.
We were founded by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs. Our founders’ entrepreneurial spirit still drives us in everything we do. We’re proud to have joined forces with The Spectator to celebrate creative UK entrepreneurship.
