If you’re looking to preserve or grow your wealth or if you want to draw a regular income, but feel you don't have the knowledge, time or the appetite to manage your own investments, then this might be the service for you. From choosing your investments, to ensuring we react quickly to any changing market dynamics and keeping you well informed at all times, you can be sure we will be supporting your personal investment needs, while you can get on with life.
Ensuring as much of your wealth is left to people or causes you care about and not the taxman is top of the agenda for most of our clients. If you’re looking for ways to reduce the potential Inheritance Tax (IHT) charge on your estate, our innovative Alternative Investment Market (AIM) service could be the ideal solution. It’s a tax-efficient, flexible and cost-effective way to reduce your potential IHT liability.
If you are a UK-domiciled individual working abroad, a high net worth resident of the Channel Islands, or an international client living in the UK or abroad we specialise in providing bespoke investment solutions that are tax efficient and flexible. Working closely with your trustees, family office or professional advisers we can help you navigate the various tax, regulatory and practical challenges of being a global citizen.
If you, or someone close to you, have received damages from a negligence or injury claim it is important to invest this compensation wisely so that it provides sufficient returns for a lifetime of care and support. At Investec, we have a dedicated and highly experienced investment team who specialise in supporting the long-term financial wellbeing of people who have received compensation awards.
We might be a global investment business but with 15 offices located all around the country we’re never far away. Being local has always been important to us as a business because investing isn’t just about where we place your funds, it’s also about spotting opportunity. Being on the ground helps us understand the local landscape, to be tuned-in to local communities and networks and as a result to be better able to support your wider needs.
Our Global Investment Strategy Group brings together our leading strategic thinkers, and some of the world’s top experts, to ensure the management of your portfolio is based on a comprehensive global macroeconomic outlook. We also employ a dedicated in-house Research Team, seek specialists and career analysts, utilise quantitative tools, buy the best research, and routinely undertake detailed due diligence to ensure we are always choosing the right investments on your behalf.
When you invest with us you’ll be dealing directly with the person making the investment decisions for your portfolio, which means nothing is lost in translation. If you appreciate people who believe in building long-lasting relationships, straightforward in all their dealings with you and that are fully invested in helping you achieve your goals, then Investec could be a great fit.
Ensuring your investments mirror your personal values is key to many people. At Investec, whilst the investment decisions we make are guided by environmental, social and governance considerations, investing the time to understand your views and to be guided on the investments that best align with your values is something we take very seriously.
With Investec you’ll never be shoe-horned into an investment solution that isn’t suited to your needs. We simply don’t do preconceptions and we don’t do bias. We know your needs are as individual as your attitudes and your ambitions, which is why we believe in starting every new relationship with a blank sheet of paper. It’s a philosophy we also carry forward into the investments we make, with a broad expanse of the market at our disposal from which to choose the right investments to meet your objectives.
At Investec, we’re passionate about what we do because we know how important financial wellbeing is to the lives of our clients. We pride ourselves on delivering an Out of the Ordinary level of service, and going the extra mile for our clients isn’t the exception, it’s the rule; which means you can expect us to put in more effort, more mileage, and more care into the way we support your needs.
The value of investments and the income derived from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back your initial investment.
