Investec is an international specialist bank and asset manager that provides a diverse range of financial products and services to a niche client base in three principal markets - the United Kingdom, South Africa and Australia, as well as certain other countries. Our strategic goals and objectives are based on our aspiration to be recognised as a distinctive specialist bank and asset manager. This distinction lies in our entrepreneurial culture, which is balanced by our strong risk management discipline, client-centric approach and ability to be nimble, flexible and innovative. We don’t try to be all things to all people. Instead, we aim to build well-defined, value-added businesses that serve the needs of market niches where we can compete effectively.
