Accordingly we advise of the following: Investec plc and Investec Limited - Directorate changes After serving as Chairman for more than 17 years, Hugh Herman has decided that it is the appropriate time to retire from the boards of Investec Limited and Investec plc (the "Board"). This will take effect on 17 November 2011, the date of the release of our interim results. Fani Titi and Sir David Prosser, who have served on the Investec Limited and Investec plc boards, for 7 years and 5 years respectively, will assume the role of Joint Chairman. Fani Titi is currently Chairman of Investec Bank Limited and Sir David Prosser is the group`s Senior Independent Non-Executive Director.
