We provide financial products and services, imbued with a personal approach, to a select client base in two principal markets: South Africa and the UK, as well as certain other countries. Investec was founded in South Africa in 1974 and entered the UK in 1992. In 2002, the group implemented a dual listed company structure with listings on the London and Johannesburg Stock Exchanges. In March 2020, the Asset Management business was demerged and separately listed as Ninety One.
Investec, in partnership with StudyTrust, provides the funding necessary to see young South Africans with academic potential get to university. With our assistance, they are able to study towards financial sector related degrees at various local universities.
