COVID-19

Update 5 May 2020

Investec is open for business as usual and is committed to supporting our clients in these uncertain, challenging times.

The ongoing spread of COVID-19 globally and within Ireland is extremely concerning for everyone. Our first priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of both our staff and clients.
 
Following An Taoiseach’s announcement on Friday 1 May of a five-stage exit plan due to commence on 18 May over three months, we have commenced discussions with our stakeholders on the implications of the phased exit plan for our business.  Our offices at The Harcourt Building in Dublin and Albert Quay in Cork will continue to remain closed until further notice.
 
This is an ever-evolving situation without business precedent. However, we are well prepared with measures in place to ensure continuity of service to our clients.
 
The current ongoing fight against the spread of COVID-19 is placing considerable strain on many businesses.  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 from the hours of 9:00am – 5:00pm, please be assured you will be able to contact Investec should the need arise.
 
Investec is monitoring all COVID-19 developments and we will continue to work closely with our clients and keep them informed of any changes to our working arrangements.
 
Keep safe and healthy.

Investec Wins at FocusEconomics Analyst Forecast Awards

We are delighted to announce that Investec’s Ronan Dunphy has been recognised as the Best Overall Forecaster for the Irish economy by FocusEconomics in the 2020 edition of its Analyst Forecast Awards. Ronan was also recognised as the Best GDP Forecaster for Ireland and ranked second for Fiscal Balance forecasting last year.

The annual FocusEconomics Analyst Forecast Awards recognise the most accurate forecasters for the main macroeconomic indicators across 89 countries. To identify the top economic forecasters, FocusEconomics assessed the accuracy of the forecasts submitted by over 350 institutions to its Consensus Forecast survey over the course of 22 months. “The FocusEconomics Analyst Forecast Awards demonstrate the outstanding work of the 1,200 economists on our panel. Each year, we are delighted to recognize the most accurate forecasts for the key macroeconomic indicators and commodities provided by the institutions that participate in our Consensus Forecast”, says Arne Pohlman, Chief Economist and Managing Director at FocusEconomics.

Investec Brand Ambassador, Stephanie Meadow Podcast

"I hope people see me as not only a professional golfer but as an entrepreneur. An entrepreneur with networking capabilities who will bring value to my stakeholders.”

Stephanie Meadow is one of the world’s top female golfers – playing on the LPGA Tour in the US and was well on her way to representing Ireland for a second time in the 2020 Olympics. She moved from Jordanstown, Co Antrim to South Carolina in the United States when she was just 14, to pursue her love of golf. Since then, she has broken college golfing records and turned pro.
 
Meadow is much more than just a golfer. An accounting graduate, she negotiates her own sponsorship deals, manages her schedule, does her own marketing and is her own agent. In short, she is a self-employed entrepreneur.
 
In this in-depth podcast, Meadow tells Ian Kehoe about the business side of golf, her role in representing her sponsors Investec, Immedis and ATA. She also talks about the impact of Covid-19 on her season, and the importance of growing female participation in sport.

COVID-19 and the Irish Property Market Webinar

COVID-19 and the Irish Property Market: What’s the Current Position?

"This webinar takes a look at the impact of COVID-19 on certain aspects of the Irish economy including its impact on housing completions. We also get an insight from a leading estate agent based in Dublin as to their experience on the ground over the last number of months since COVID-19 has taken hold in Ireland."
Ciaran Leddy

 
"The impact from the pandemic on the domestic economy remains unclear, however we may now be at the nadir in terms of unemployment with some sectors able to gradually resume work from next week. We are already seeing an impact on the property market with transaction volumes and new listings markedly lower. Housing output is also sure to take a hit, which will not help the housing undersupply situation but may mitigate the downward pressure on prices to some extent."
