We combine a flat structure with a focus on internal mobility. If you can bring an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to learn and collaborate to your work, this could be the boost your career deserves.

The team is responsible for putting together the Group's house view on global growth prospects, including much of the analysis of interest rates and currencies. We focus on the UK, the eurozone and the United States in detail. However it is often also necessary to develop a degree of expertise in different jurisdictions at short notice. We pride ourselves on taking a proactive and practical approach to economics in order to maximise our effectiveness in supporting our clients and Investec's internal businesses. In addition the team is involved in assisting the Group on various aspects of the regulatory sphere.
