Investec is an international, specialist banking group 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 geographies. Since Investec was founded in South Africa in 1974, it has expanded through a combination of substantial organic growth and a series of strategic acquisitions in South Africa, the United Kingdom and other geographies. Investec’s strategic goals are motivated by the desire to develop an efficient and integrated business on an international scale through the active pursuit of clearly established core competencies in the group’s principal business areas. The group’s philosophy has been to build well-defined, value-added businesses focusing on serving the needs of select market niches where the group can compete effectively. The group employs approximately 6000 people world-wide. In July 2002 Investec became the first South African group to list in London and Johannesburg by implementing a Dual Listed Companies (DLC) structure. The London listing benefits the group by increasing its global profile, enhancing its capital raising ability and improving access to international capital markets.
