UK Private 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. 

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

  • An interest rate of 0.25% Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) variable on your entire balance
  • A flat 2% currency conversion fee on non-British pound (GBP) transactions for both withdrawals and spend on your Investec Visa card
  • No charge for ATM withdrawals even when you're abroad, with a daily account withdrawal limit of £1 000 (international banks may charge an additional fee for use of their ATMs)
  • 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.
