Not everybody here has a financial background but they’re all self-starters. Everybody collaborates and drives things forward.

Case study: a career story

Arjun Chopra at Investec

Arjun Chopra joined Investec more than 12 years ago on our very first graduate programme and now heads up our Private Capital team, which lends money to high-net-worth individuals, business owners and entrepreneurs. During that time he’s worked in different teams, and in different countries, including India. He says: “Being able to move around and learn new skills at Investec has given me different perspectives to draw on. People’s vision often starts to get broader as they spend more time here and it drives entrepreneurial thinking. From day one I’ve never felt restricted or unable to have a point of view.”
