COVID-19

Update 5 January 2021 Investec is open for business and we are working in partnership with our clients in these challenging times.

With the increased restrictions in Ireland to Level 5, our first priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of both our staff and clients.

We understand the challenges that COVID-19 has put on many of our clients and we want to assure all our clients that we are open for business and are ensuring continuity of service through a combination of both remote working and a limited number of staff performing key functions from our offices at the Harcourt Building in Dublin and Albert Quay in Cork. Unfortunately due to social distancing and increased restrictive measures in place adhering to current Government guidelines we are not in a position to welcome our clients to our offices.

Should any client wish to discuss their particular circumstances please contact your Investec Ireland relationship manager in the usual manner by phone or email.

Investec’s primary contact telephone number (01) 421 0000 is fully operational Monday to Friday from the hours of 9:00am to 5:00pm.

Please keep safe and take care.

Research and Insights, Market Bulletin January 2021

There is very much a forward-looking theme to our first Market Bulletin of 2021. We highlight five things to look out for in the Irish economy this year, including a potential resurgence in property prices and a strong domestic recovery, albeit one that may be slower to arrive than in the UK. We round-up events in the Irish M&A market last year, courtesy of Investec Corporate Finance, and assess market conditions for the year ahead. Investec Treasury looks at what has been behind the recent strength in Sterling as well as taking on some oil market crystal ball-gazing.

Investec Europe Ltd, Credit Union Newsletter, Q4 2020

Investec Europe Ltd, Credit Union Newsletter, Q4 2020

We are delighted to launch our latest Credit Union newsletter for Q4. In it, our chief economist Ronan Dunphy takes a look at the prevailing trends in the Irish Economy, the financial sector, and investment markets. The impact of Covid and return to lockdown continue to have a major impact, but rising hope of a vaccine or vaccines becoming available early next year, along with a resolution of the uncertainty around the US presidential election have served to boost investor (and overall) sentiment. Our head trader Justin Doyle also gives his view on markets which unfortunately doesn’t see any end to the low interest rate environment prevailing in the Eurozone at the moment. Our Compliance team take another look at legislation heading our direction down the line, this time the “SEAR”. Finally, we take a look at the success of the 20x20 initiative, a  campaign which Investec have been very proud to support over the past 2 years. Aimed at boosting participation in, coverage of, and attendance at women’s sporting events by the end of 2020, the initiative has been a great success and is now looking to continue to promote equality in women’s sport beyond 2020.

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss anything in this quarters update, please don’t hesitate to contact your relationship manager.
