Living in society, not off it

Investec’s Corporate Social Investments (CSI) are central to the group’s philosophy of making an unselfish contribution to society. Our approach to CSI focuses on education and entrepreneurship. We believe initiatives in these two areas are the most effective way to create employment, wealth creation and socio-economic growth in South Africa.

Giving back is part of Investec’s DNA. It’s part of who we have always been. We always want to live in society and not off it.

Investec’s CSI Strategy

Our overall aim is to create opportunities for young people to become active participants in society. To achieve this, we recognise that there needs to be a continuum of initiatives, starting from high school, moving to tertiary education and continuing through to young adult learning.

Our strategy can therefore be depicted in a progressive pipeline, spanning three stages of personal learning and growth. We are passionate about empowering talented, hardworking individuals so that they may realise their potential.

Investec has always held firm to the belief that we live in society, not off it. We are therefore determined to mount an urgent and constructive response to the Covid-19 crisis, making use of our own resources and our well-established network of partners and beneficiaries.
