UK Private bank account

Private UK Bank Account

Banking for a global citizen

As part of our Investec. One Place™ proposition that gives our clients access to local and international banking, Investec’s South African Private Banking clients* can open a UK Private bank account. This account offers a sterling-based transactional account in the United Kingdom. 

* excluding clients whose residency is in a European Union country.

Transact easily

The account has been designed as a secondary account to complement your primary South African Private Bank Account and is suitable for clients who regularly travel to the UK or receive income in the UK.

UK Private bank account provides you with

  • No foreign currency fees when you use your Investec debit card in certain countries outside the UK to make a debit card payment in a foreign currency, receive a credit (e.g. refund) to your debit card in a foreign currency or make a cash withdrawal in a foreign currency
  • A foreign currency fee of 2% of the value of the transaction if elsewhere and outside the UK
  • No fee when making cash withdrawals in pounds in the UK (international banks may charge a fee for use of their ATMs)
  • A daily ATM withdrawal limit of £1 000
  • No fee on international transfers
  • Access to your account through Investec Online and the Investec App.


Make the switch

Our current account switch service takes the hassle out of switching your current accounts from a UK bank or building society to Investec.

Online or in person

Through Investec Online or the App, view and transact on your South African and UK accounts on one platform, with one login. If you need assistance, the global Client Support Centre is ready to help you 24/7/365.
