Why was my Bank wary of me opening a years fixed rate account with Investec? — Jane Beal

The questions on the site about concerns re investing in an Investec savings account don't seem to have answers. Their 1 year fixed term bond is an attractive proposition and features in 'Best Buy' comparison sites - is this a safe haven for savings given a guaranteed return? — Grant Thornton

Why is my bank advising me not to make a payment as Investec is not recognised? — Lesley Hillaby

“I wanted to invest in an Account with Investec. However, it failed to send me a one-time password to my phone”

I wanted to invest in an Account with Investec. However, it failed to send me a one-time password to my phone. I restarted my phone several times, restarted my laptop several times and tried a couple of times a day for 7 days to open an account. I tried the on-line chat but they directed me to Technical Services. They also asked loads of questions but could not help. So I tried the Chat Line again. After 30 odd mins they told me I don't have a mobile phone with a release version of 9 or above. Who cares? They are only sending a one-time password! They are useless and have lost out on a 50k investment.

“You always get rapid access to decision makers who can address your needs”

You always get rapid access to decision makers who can address your needs. Service is generally excellent. Minor quibble that UK services are relatively limited and no business banking offered. But what is offered is done superbly.
