Commitment to our communities
Our community initiatives are central to the groups’ values of making an unselfish contribution to society, nurturing an entrepreneurial spirit, valuing diversity and respecting others, which all underpin Investec’s aim of being a responsible corporate citizen.
Our approach to community initiatives
In line with our vision to create sustained long-term wealth, we need a thriving economy with active economic participants. To become economically active, people need to be educated and skilled in order to be employed or create employment themselves as entrepreneurs. Those professionals and entrepreneurs become our clients and staff, and partner with us to create more wealth. In this way, we can address financial inclusion, creating active economic participants and engaging with communities in a meaningful way.
