The home of Out of the Ordinary
Welcome to Investec, a distinctive specialist bank and asset manager. We know you want solutions relevant to your needs and ambitions, so we fashion everything we do around you, the client.
‘Our business was born out of a strong entrepreneurial spirit. This ethos is lived in the way we practice business every day.’
Stephen Koseff, Investec Group CEO
Our purpose is to facilitate the creation and management of wealth.
We provide financial products and services, imbued with a personal approach, to a select client base in three principal markets: the UK and Europe, Southern Africa and Asia-Pacific. Investec was founded in South Africa in 1974. We entered the UK in 1992, and have since expanded through a combination of substantial organic growth and strategic acquisitions.
Today Investec employs more than 9,700 people worldwide and is listed in London and Johannesburg. We focus on delivering distinctive profitable solutions for our clients in three core areas of activity: Asset Management, Wealth & Investment and Specialist Banking.
Assets under management globally
Cities on five continents
We strive to be a distinctive specialist bank and asset manager driven by commitment to our core philosophies and values.
We believe that what distinguishes us is the long-term relationships we build with our clients, based on open and honest dialogue and cast-iron integrity.
Energy, ambition and outstanding talent are what drive us. Through meritocracy, respect and openness to fresh thinking, we stimulate extraordinary performance in our people.
We offer client service, not customer support– and create strategies and services designed around your needs and goals, not ours.
Our unique history and evolution is testimony to what drives us. This entrepreneurial spirit is something our clients tend to share.
Our journey is something that sets us apart - from a small finance company in South Africa in 1974 to an international organisation trusted to manage clients' assets worth more than £150 billion.
We operate across three areas of specialisation focused on well defined target clients:
Whether you regard yourself as an entrepreneur, business professional or high net worth individual, our aim is to make your personal wealth work harder. We do this through onshore and offshore services including private banking, saving, personal investment management, lending and financing.
Businesses and corporates
Our expert global teams offer a comprehensive corporate advisory service in addition to banking, investment and finance solutions. Other clients include pension funds, government departments, insurance companies, hospitals, charities and friendly societies.
If you’re a financial adviser or lawyer you can be confident that our expertise will deliver the results your clients are seeking. We provide professional investing, financing, lending and transactional services, depending on your clients’ objectives.
