Deon Katz

Private Bank SA head

I have overall responsibility for Private Bank SA which incorporates private capital, property finance and banking. In my role, I oversee marketing and the client value proposition including lending, FX trading and account services.

I started my career at Investec in 2007 working in the Growth & Acquisition Finance team. I became Head of Banking for the Johannesburg Private Bank in 2011, and started my current role in 2016. The best part about Investec is working with like-minded people and the vibrant culture that exists here. I'm driven by my team's energy and by helping them grow and develop, while providing the best service to clients.


I enjoy reading, keeping fit and playing guitar.


I hold a Dip Law (Higher diploma financial law, Financial Planning and Services) from the University of the Free State, an MBA from Milpark and a CFP.
