Each of our clients has a distinctive story and a unique set of needs

Whether you’re building your business, growing your family, or creating your legacy, we take the time to understand your potential and bring our years of experience to bear in helping you to achieve it. Through deep client relationships built on mutual trust, we help to make the extraordinary possible.

This approach has defined us ever since our founding in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1974. It’s a philosophy that extends to every facet of our business.

We call it ‘Out of the Ordinary’

Today, Investec is publicly traded in London and Johannesburg

It is staffed by 7,400 employees across its core geographies of the UK and South Africa, along with other locations across the globe. But the beliefs upon which we were founded remain as relevant and vital today as they were when we first opened our doors as a small finance company almost five decades ago.

Our track record of delivering exceptional service comes from the refreshingly human approach of our people, who share a belief that we will find a way to succeed, even in difficult times.

Our history

Our journey of organic growth and strategic acquisitions is something that sets us apart - from a small finance company in South Africa in 1974 to an international organisation. A unique balance of tradition and modernity.

Our businesses

Our divisions include Corporate & Investment Banking and Private Banking. We also offer access to our partner Investec Wealth & Investment (UK), now a part of the Rathbones group.

The future is undecided. To navigate these extraordinary times, you need a strong partner, someone you trust to support you and grow with you.
Together, we’ll achieve things tomorrow that hardly seem possible today.
We are Investec.
