Private Bank Graduate Programme

Challenge the ordinary

Begin your career in a unique private bank which understands that you, just like our clients, are a lot more than a number.

At Investec, our graduates share our core values of integrity, entrepreneurial spirit and the ability to think Out of the Ordinary. Which is why we look for more than just academic excellence: building relationships and making an impact are intrinsically valuable to our business and your success.

How the programme works

At the beginning of the programme, you will complete three mini rotations across Investec's Private Bank, Corporate & Investment Bank (CIB) and Wealth & Investment divisions.

You will then gain in-depth exposure to operational, client-facing and credit teams in our Private Bank. We look for more than your qualifications, but also building relationships and making an impact. 

Learning opportunities

Operating in a unique environment, you will embark upon a fascinating learning journey when joining our Private Bank. The programme is designed to give you a holistic overview of the division to help towards finding your niche.
We are degree-agnostic and don’t expect you to hit the ground running from day one. The teams you will work with are refreshingly human, and will help guide you along this journey. You will also complete the CFA Level 1, which will enhance your core knowledge of finance.
