Investec offers financial services and products with a personalised touch to a specific clientele in two primary markets: South Africa and the UK, along with some other regions. Investec originated in South Africa in 1974 and expanded to the UK in 1992. In 2002, the company adopted a dual-listed company structure, with listings on both the London and Johannesburg Stock Exchanges. Notably, in March 2020, the Asset Management business became a separate entity and was listed as Ninety One.
In collaboration with StudyTrust, Investec offers financial support to enable academically promising young South Africans to pursue higher education. This assistance enables them to enroll in financial sector-related degree programs at different local universities.
