Integrated Annual Report 2015

About this report

The 2015 integrated annual report covers the period 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015 and provides an overview of the Investec group.

This report covers all our operations across the various geographies in which we operate and has been structured to provide stakeholders with relevant financial and non-financial information. We value feedback and invite questions and comments on our reporting.

To give feedback or request hard copies of our reports, please contact our Investor Relations division.

Ongoing and statutory information

During the year the group sold a number of businesses, namely, Investec Bank (Australia) Limited, Kensington Group plc and Start Mortgage Holdings Limited (as discussed here).

The sale of these businesses has had a significant effect on the comparability of our financial statutory position and results. As a result, comparison on a statutory basis of the 2015 results with 2014 would be less meaningful.

In order to present a more meaningful view of our performance, additional management information is presented on our ongoing businesses. This information is only set out in volume one of our annual report. The additional information presented on an ongoing basis excludes items that in management’s view could distort the comparison of performance between periods. Based on this principle, the following items are excluded from underlying statutory profit to derive ongoing operating profit:

  • The results of the businesses sold as mentioned above
  • The remaining legacy business in the UK (as set out here).

A reconciliation between the statutory and ongoing income statement is provided here. All information in our annual report comprising volumes one, two and three are based on our statutory accounts unless otherwise indicated.
