We started Investec Asset Management over twenty years ago. With the new South Africa blossoming around us, we believed we could do things differently. This attitude shaped our new firm. And, just like the founding leadership team, the same attitude remains in place today.
While our business evolves, our culture remains constant. It’s non-negotiable. Communication is vital. We pride ourselves on being honestly ambitious and plain-speaking. We tell it how it is. We always have.
A shared pioneering spirit binds us: ‘the freedom to create’. This is cultivated by organising the firm into specialist teams. Not only does this liberate employees; it instils a sense of ownership and makes everyone accountable for their individual performance.
At Investec Asset Management clients come first. We understand the meaning of “other people’s money” and we are acutely aware of the fact that we have been entrusted with client money. We believe that our long-term success is dependent on the success of our clients.
Our product range is diverse and inventive. Roots in Africa have given us expertise in frontier markets and commodities, while our established presence in London provides the perfect vantage point for global investing.
We know that only outstanding long-term performance will satisfy you. We’re also aware that we can’t guarantee results. But we can guarantee this: we’ll give it everything we have, every step of the way.
Welcome to Investec Asset Management.
