What drives me

I like that Investec gives you the freedom to operate within an entrepreneurial and client-centric culture. I am driven by finding solutions to complex problems and working with a highly skilled and experienced team.

I enjoy the outdoors, whether that is fishing, hiking, game viewing, mountain biking or golfing. I am married with two children and I spend most weekends watching them play sport!
