Investec also offers credit cards, a savings account, car loans and foreign exchange services.
Investec Australia head of IFA distribution Gareth Bird said that, “financial advisers are a unique group of clients with a distinct set of banking requirements,” and “there have been very few banking solutions developed to specifically help financial advisers effectively and efficiently manage their own personal finances. We have a strong track record in providing bespoke solutions across professional services and by understanding specific needs of financial advisers we are able to provide niche banking services in one convenient bundle.”
