Investec is a distinctive bank and wealth manager serving clients principally in the UK and South Africa. Our culture gives us our edge: we look for colleagues with entrepreneurial thinking, and give them the freedom to share fresh ideas and build real relationships. Our culture is one of honest conversations.
Investec partners with private, institutional and corporate clients to offer international banking, investments, and wealth management services. We are driven by a commitment to our core philosophies and values.
Integrity We believe that what distinguishes us are the long-term relationships we build with our clients, based on open and honest dialogue and cast-iron integrity.
Distinctive performance Energy, ambition and outstanding talent are what drive us. Through meritocracy, respect and openness to fresh thinking, we stimulate extraordinary performance in our people.
Client focus We offer client service, not customer support – and create strategies and services designed around your needs and goals, not ours.
Entrepreneurial spirit Our unique history and evolution are testimony to what drives us. This entrepreneurial spirit is something our clients tend to share.
Diversity & Inclusion
At Investec we want everyone to find it easy to be themselves and that they belong. It’s a responsibility we all share and is integral to our purpose and values as an organisation.
By focusing on belonging, we aspire for people to feel comfortable in an environment that celebrates their individuality and that of others. When it comes to inclusion, we believe that it recognises multiple types of differences, so everyone has a voice and feels connected, while being true to their identity. Finally, in our view, diversity goes beyond demographic descriptors – it’s also about identities, cultures, different perspectives and approaches.

What our people say
'I want to say to anyone thinking of returning to work after a career break that you can do it too. The challenges seem much greater in your head.'
— Divya Saldhana, iX team
'Very few organisations have the legacy we have. The leaders of the organisation can have a coffee with me and hear how I’m doing, and what I’m doing.'
— Charles Lesia, FX Trading for private clients
'I’m from a working class background in Wolverhampton and I was worried finance would be stifling, but I was proved wrong. I’ve been able to be myself as a woman and as a woman of colour.'
— Amandip Bahia, People and Organisation Lead
'We’re constantly challenging ourselves on diversity and ask how we can get more women into senior positions and other minorities into the workforce. Different perspectives give us a richness of thought.'
— Deborah Sayagh, Head of Strategic Client Partnerships
'It’s a continuous effort to make sure we’re mindful of our biases and are consciously inclusive. Part of our work is to help each other embrace opportunities to grow and thrive.'
— Zandile Nkhata, Belonging, Inclusion and Diversity lead at Investec
'Diversity of thought is critical to increasing our ability to innovate, adapt, and perform in this fast-paced world. We believe that more diverse groups will give rise to a more inclusive environment.'
— Ruth Leas, CEO, Investec Bank plc
'I co-ran a clothing drive for a charity called Dress for Success and we donated 46 boxes of clothes to help get women back into work. Being given time to do that enables me to bring my other passions into the office.'
