Investec shares

Background of Investec

  • Investec Bank is best termed as an international, specialist bank and asset management company that focuses on providing a diverse range of financial products and services for sale to a niche client base in three principal markets: the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Australia, in addition to smaller markets in other countries.

  • Investec was initially established as a small leasing and financing company in 1974 in Johannesburg by Larry Nestadt, Errol Grolman and Ian Kantor. From this humble history, the company has since grown and expanded through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions. Investec Bank shares now have a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange and started trading on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 1986 after merging with Metboard, a trust company.

  • Investec’s portfolio of services includes banking, financing, lending, investing, equities, commodities, financial advisory services, property development, acquisition and fund management and stockbroking.

  • The company’s market cap currently stands at R 30.66 billion. The live online JSE stocks chart shows that Investec Bank share price has had strong gains over the past five years, but performance has recently been dealt a blow but the weak rand and economic conditions.

Investec Shares Growth Driver

  • Investec Bank’s operations are split into seven primary divisions, namely Asset Management, Weath & Investment, Private Banking, Specialist Banking, Investment Banking, Property and Capital Markets.

  • The Asset Management and Wealth and Investment divisions recorded the strongest growth in 2015, growing by 8.8% and 9.5% respectively. Specialist Banking also registered significant growth and is expected to be a big contributor to Investec’s profits in future. Despite difficult trade conditions, Investec Bank has effectively managed to penetrate its key markets and has a history of maintaining a fairly stable Investec Bank share price through tough times. The tide is starting to turn in a positive direction for economies in South Africa and the UK, which remain a critical factor in determining the group’s future success and investor willingness to buy Investec Bank shares.

Investec Investor Tip

  • Investec Bank has produced solid results during the last couple of years but weaker market conditions and overall growth concerns have recently weighed on the stock
    and Investec Bank share price has come down from its December 2015 peak of more than R120 to R86.22 by September 2016.

  • In volatile and irrational markets, good-quality assets can be bought at relatively low prices and Investec is one of them. According to the bank, the forecast is that most of the negatives surrounding the falling rand have been factored in already, meaning that there should now be a return to profitability for the company and investors who buy Investec Bank shares.

  • As the economy starts to turn and Investec continues to diversify and expand its services through digital platforms, acquisitions and better penetration of exisiting markets, Investec Bank looks to be a fairly good share to buy.
