Unaudited combined consolidated financial results for the six months ended 30 September 2015

Investec, the International specialist bank and asset manager, announces its results for the six months
ended 30 September 2015

This announcement covers the results of the Investec group for the six
months ended 30 September 2015.

Basis of presentation

Statutory basis
Statutory information is set out in a separate section in this announcement.
The sale of businesses during the previous financial year (further detail is
provided in the "Notes to the commentary section") has had a significant
effect on the comparability of the group's financial position and results. As a
result, comparison on a statutory basis of these interim results with the prior
period would be less meaningful.

Ongoing basis
In order to present a more meaningful view of the group's performance,
the results are presented on an ongoing basis excluding 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 profit:

- the results of the businesses sold i.e. Investec Bank (Australia) Limited, the
  UK Kensington business and the Start (Irish) mortgage business;
- the remaining legacy business in the UK.

This basis of presentation is consistent with the approach adopted for the
year ended 31 March 2015. A reconciliation between the statutory and
ongoing income statement is provided.

Unless the context indicates otherwise, all comparatives included in the
commentary relate to the six months ended 30 September 2014. Group
results have been negatively impacted by the 8.2% depreciation of the
average Rand: Pounds Sterling exchange rate over the period. Amounts
represented on a currency neutral basis for income statement items assume
that the relevant average exchange rates remain the same for the six
month period to 30 September 2015 when compared to the prior period.
Amounts represented on a currency neutral basis for balance sheet items
assume that the relevant closing exchange rates remain the same as at
30 September 2015 when compared to 31 March 2015.

Overview of results
Positive business momentum contributes to improved results
- Sustained improvement in the operating environment in the UK has
  supported good levels of activity in the banking businesses.
- In South Africa the corporate and private banking businesses have seen
  strong growth in loan portfolios and client activity, notwithstanding an
  overall weakness in macro-economic conditions.
- The Specialist Banking investment and fixed income portfolios have
  posted a solid result during the period.
- The Specialist Banking business has reported results substantially ahead
  of the prior period.
- The Asset Management and Wealth & Investment businesses have
  reported solid net inflows of GBP4.0 billion.
- Continued investment in infrastructure, digital platforms and increased
  headcount are supporting growth initiatives in the overall business.
- The group has further grown and enhanced its international offering,
  increasing its client base and deepening its core franchise.
- A diversified portfolio and a sound balance of earnings generated
  between capital light and capital intensive businesses continues to
  support a high level of recurring income.

Statutory operating profit salient features
- Statutory operating profit before goodwill, acquired intangibles, non-
  operating items and taxation and after other non-controlling interests
  ("operating profit") increased 16.1% to GBP279.4 million (2014: GBP240.8
  million) – an increase of 22.5% on a currency neutral basis.
- Statutory adjusted earnings per share (EPS) before goodwill, acquired
  intangibles and non-operating items increased 13.2% from 19.7 pence to
  22.3 pence – an increase of 19.8% on a currency neutral basis.

Solid performance from the ongoing business
- Ongoing operating profit increased 16.5% to GBP315.0 million (2014:
  GBP270.4 million) – an increase of 22.2% on a currency neutral basis.
- Ongoing adjusted EPS before goodwill, acquired intangibles and non-
  operating items increased 13.3% from 22.5 pence to 25.5 pence – an
  increase of 19.1% on a currency neutral basis.
- Third party assets under management decreased 8.2% to GBP113.9
  billion (31 March 2015: GBP124.1billion) – a decrease of 3.1% on a
  currency neutral basis.
- Customer accounts (deposits) decreased 4.2% to GBP21.7 billion
  (31 March 2015: GBP22.6 billion) - an increase of 4.5% on a currency neutral
  basis.
- Core loans and advances decreased 2.5% to GBP16.1 billion (31 March
  2015: GBP16.5 billion) - an increase of 7.1% on a currency neutral basis.

The UK legacy portfolio continues to be actively managed 
down
- The legacy portfolio reduced from GBP696 million at 31 March 2015 to GBP645
  million through redemptions and write-offs.
- The legacy business reported a loss before taxation of GBP35.5 million
  (2014:GBP41.7 million) with impairments on the legacy portfolio reducing 24.5%
  from GBP37.6 million to GBP28.4 million.

Maintained a sound balance sheet
- Capital remained well in excess of current regulatory requirements. The
  group is comfortable with its common equity tier 1 ratio target at a 10%
  level, as its current leverage ratios for both Investec Limited and Investec
  plc are above 7%.
- Liquidity remained strong with cash and near cash balances amounting to
  GBP9.2 billion.

Dividend increase of 11.8%
- The board declared a dividend of 9.5 pence per ordinary share (2014:
  8.5 pence) resulting in a dividend cover based on the group's adjusted
  EPS before goodwill and non-operating items of 2.3 times (2014: 2.3
  times), consistent with the group's dividend policy.

Stephen Koseff, Chief Executive Officer of Investec said:
"We are pleased with the progress shown by the group, with profits
comfortably ahead of last year. In particular, our Specialist Banking
businesses are benefiting from positive business momentum, as reflected in
the growth in our loan books and increased client base. Our investment to
digitise and internationalise the Wealth & Investment operation will place it
on a strong footing to continue its growth trajectory, whilst good net inflows
demonstrate the resilience and diversification of our Asset Management
franchise. We are well placed to continue our growth despite the Rand
weakness and market volatility."

Bernard Kantor, Managing Director of Investec said:

"Strong results from our Specialist Bank reflect our hard work to develop
and reshape this business. The strength of our Asset Management and
Wealth & Investment franchises supported solid net inflows, notwithstanding
challenging market conditions. Investec continues to position its core
businesses for sustained growth in its principal markets."

Investec plc and Investec Limited (combined results)
Unaudited combined consolidated financial results for the six months ended
30 September 2015.

The commentary below largely focuses on the results of the ongoing
business.

Overall group performance – ongoing basis
Operating profit before goodwill, acquired intangibles, non-operating items
and taxation and after other non-controlling interests ("operating profit")
increased 16.5% to GBP315.0 million (2014: GBP270.4 million) – an increase
of 22.2% on a currency neutral basis. Group results have been negatively
impacted by the 8.2% depreciation of the average Rand: Pounds Sterling
exchange rate over the period.

The combined South African businesses operating profit rose 13.0% in
Rand, whilst the combined UK and Other businesses posted a 37.8%
increase in operating profit in Pounds Sterling.

Operating profit in the Specialist Banking business increased 29.1%
benefiting from good levels of client activity across our geographies,
supported by a deepening of the client franchise. Wealth & Investment's
operating profit decreased by 0.5% and Asset Management's operating profit
declined 8.0%. Both divisions have continued to experience higher levels of
average funds under management and net inflows.

Salient features of the period under review are:
- Adjusted earnings attributable to shareholders before goodwill, acquired
  intangibles and non-operating items increased 15.2% to GBP222.6
  million (2014: GBP193.2 million) – an increase of 20.9% on a currency
  neutral basis.
- Adjusted earnings per share (EPS) before goodwill, acquired intangibles
  and non-operating items increased 13.3% from 22.5 pence to 25.5
  pence – an increase of 19.1% on a currency neutral basis.
- Recurring income as a percentage of total operating income amounted
  to 71.6% (2014: 74.6%).
- The annualised credit loss charge as a percentage of average gross
  core loans and advances amounted to 0.22% (2014: 0.29%), with
  impairments decreasing by 14.3% to GBP17.7 million.
- Third party assets under management decreased 8.2% to
  GBP113.9 billion (31 March 2015: GBP124.1billion) – a decrease of
  3.1% on a currency neutral basis.
- Customer accounts (deposits) decreased 4.2% to GBP21.7 billion
  (31 March 2015: GBP22.6 billion) - an increase of 4.5% on a currency
  neutral basis.
- Core loans and advances decreased 2.5% to GBP16.1 billion
  (31 March 2015: GBP16.5 billion) - an increase of 7.1% on a currency
  neutral basis.

Business unit review – ongoing basis
Asset Management
Asset Management operating profit decreased by 8.0% to GBP70.6 million
(2014: GBP76.7 million). The business benefited from solid net inflows of
GBP2.9 billion. Earnings were impacted by market and currency volatility
and lower performance fees in South Africa. Total funds under management
amount to GBP70.1 billion (31 March 2015: GBP77.5 billion).

Wealth & Investment
Wealth & Investment operating profit decreased by 0.5% to GBP37.9 million
(2014: GBP38.0 million). The business benefited from higher average funds
under management and net inflows of GBP1.1 billion. Total funds under
management amount to GBP43.4 billion (31 March 2015: GBP46.1 billion).
Overall performance of the global business is marginally behind the prior
period due to investment expenditure on growth initiatives, particularly in
the UK business. These initiatives should support an increase in operating
margin in the medium term.

Specialist Banking
Specialist Banking operating profit increased by 29.1% to GBP229.2 million
(2014: GBP177.6 million).

South Africa reported a solid increase in net interest income driven by loan
book growth of 9.5% to ZAR199.4 billion. The unlisted investment portfolio
performed well during the period. The corporate and private banking
businesses benefited from positive business momentum and franchise
growth. The credit loss ratio on average core loans and advances improved
marginally to 0.28% (2014: 0.29%), despite the business reporting a
moderate increase in impairments.

The UK and Other businesses experienced good levels of activity, higher
earnings from the fixed income portfolio and a normalised performance from
the Hong Kong investment portfolio. Core loans grew 3.1% to GBP6.6 billion
and impairments declined over the period, with the credit loss ratio
amounting to 0.13% (2014: 0.27%).

Further information on key developments within each of the business units is
provided in a detailed report published on the group's website:
http://www.investec.com.

Group costs
These largely relate to group brand and marketing costs and a portion of
executive and support functions which are associated with group level
activities. These costs are not incurred by the operating divisions and are
necessary to support the operational functioning of the group. Historically,
these numbers were reflected solely in the results of the Specialist Bank
and the group now reflects these separately. These costs amounted to
GBP22.6 million (2014: GBP21.9 million).

Financial statement analysis – ongoing basis
Total operating income
Total operating income before impairment losses on loans and advances
increased by 11.2% to GBP992.1 million (2014: GBP891.8 million).

Net interest income increased by 7.8% to GBP284.1 million (2014:
GBP263.5 million) largely due to strong book growth and an increase in
margin earned on early redemption of loans, reflecting higher activity levels.

Net fee and commission income increased by 0.9% to GBP530.6 million
(2014: GBP525.9 million) as a result of higher average funds under
management over the period and net inflows in the Asset Management and
Wealth Management businesses. The Specialist Banking business benefited
from a solid performance from the corporate treasury, corporate structuring
and property fund management businesses in South Africa. Growth in fees
in the global private banking business was supported by increased client
activity. This was partially offset by lower fees earned in the UK corporate
finance business and the asset management business in South Africa.

Investment income increased significantly to GBP112.4 million (2014:
GBP54.8 million). The group's unlisted investment portfolio in South
Africa delivered a solid performance, the Hong Kong investment portfolio
performance normalised and the UK experienced higher earnings from the
fixed income portfolio.

Trading income arising from customer flow increased by 10.8% to
GBP57.3 million (2014:GBP51.7 million) whilst trading income from
other trading activities reflected a profit of GBP4.3 million (2014: loss of
GBP9.1 million) largely due to foreign currency gains.

Other operating income includes associate income and income earned on an
operating lease portfolio.

Impairment losses on loans and advances
Impairments on loans and advances decreased from GBP20.7 million to
GBP17.7 million. Since 31 March 2015 gross defaults have improved from
GBP247.1 million to GBP210.1 million. The percentage of default loans (net
of impairments but before taking collateral into account) to core loans and
advances amounted to 0.85% (31 March 2015: 1.04%).

Operating costs
The ratio of total operating costs to total operating income was 65.4%
(2014:67.4%). Total operating costs grew by 8.0% to GBP648.6 million
(2014: GBP600.5 million) reflecting: an increase in headcount and business
infrastructure expenses across divisions to support increased activity and
growth initiatives; an increase in variable remuneration given increased
profitability in certain businesses.

Taxation
The effective tax rate amounts to 21.2 % (2014:18.8%).

Profit attributable to non-controlling interests
Profit attributable to non-controlling interests mainly comprises:

- GBP8.6 million profit attributable to non-controlling interests in the Asset
  Management business.
- GBP12.7 million profit attributable to non-controlling interests in the
  Investec Property Fund Limited.
- A reduction of GBP2.5 million relating to Euro denominated preferred
  securities issued by a subsidiary of Investec plc which were reflected on
  the balance sheet as part of non-controlling interests. (The transaction
  was hedged and a forex transaction loss arising on the hedge was
  reflected in operating profit before goodwill with the equal and opposite
  impact reflected in earnings attributable to non-controlling interests).
  These securitites were redeemed on 24 June 2015.

Balance sheet analysis
Since 31 March 2015:

- Total shareholders' equity (including non-controlling interests) decreased
  by 9.3% to GBP3.7 billion largely due to the depreciation of the Rand
  against Pounds Sterling.
- Net asset value per share decreased 5.2% to 345.8 pence and net
  tangible asset value per share (which excludes goodwill and intangible
  assets) decreased by 6.8% to 287.1 pence.
- The annualised return on adjusted average shareholders' equity of the
  ongoing business increased from 13.8% to 14.8%.

Liquidity and funding
As at 30 September 2015 the group held GBP9.2 billion in cash and near
cash balances (GBP4.4 billion in Investec plc and R100.0 billion in Investec
Limited) which amounted to 36.0% of its liability base. Loans and advances
to customers as a percentage of customer deposits amounted to 75.1%
(31 March 2015: 74.0%). The group had higher average liquidity levels in
the UK driven by the sale of group assets in the prior financial year. These
balances have decreased by 12.9% since 31 March 2015, as part of a
planned strategy by the group to reduce surplus cash balances post the
sale of group assets, whilst maintaining its overall conservative approach
to liquidity management. The group comfortably meets Basel liquidity
requirements for the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) and Net Stable Funding
Ratio (NSFR) in the UK. In South Africa the group has continued to see good
progress from Investec Cash Investments leading to higher cash balances.
Basel III LCR regulations have been implemented from 1 January 2015.
Investec Bank Limited (Solo basis) ended the period to 30 September 2015
with the three-month average of its LCR at 118.3%, which is well ahead of
the minimum levels required. Further detail with respect to the bank's LCR
ratio in South Africa is provided on the website.

Capital adequacy and leverage ratios
The group is targeting a minimum common equity tier one capital ratio above
10% by March 2016 and a total capital adequacy ratio range of 14% to
17% on a consolidated basis for each of Investec plc and Investec Limited
respectively. The group's anticipated fully loaded Basel III common equity
tier 1 capital adequacy ratios in both Investec plc and Investec Limited are
reflected in the table below.
                                         30 September   31 March

*Based on the group's understanding of current and draft regulations, "fully
loaded" is based on Basel III capital requirements as fully phased in by 2022.

^The capital adequacy disclosures follow Investec's normal basis of presentation
so as to show a consistent basis of calculation across the jurisdictions in which
the group operates. For Investec plc this does not include the deduction of
foreseeable dividends when calculating CET1 capital as now required under the
CRR and EBA technical standards. The impact of the final proposed ordinary and
preference dividends totalling GBP59 million for Investec plc would be around
50 bps. Investec Limited's capital information includes unappropriated profits.
If unappropriated profits are excluded from the capital information, Investec
Limited's tier 1 and capital adequacy ratio would be 9 bps lower.

Legacy business – overview of results
Since 31 March 2015 the group's legacy portfolio in the UK has continued
to be actively managed down from GBP696 million to GBP645 million
largely through redemptions and write-offs. The total legacy business
over the period reported a loss before taxation of GBP35.5 million
(2014:GBP41.7 million). The remaining legacy portfolio will continue to
be managed down as the group sees opportunities to clear the portfolio.
Management believe that the remaining legacy book will still take two to
four years to wind down. Total net defaults in the legacy book amount to
GBP181 million (31 March 2015: GBP185 million).

Additional information - South African Investment Vehicle
In South Africa a new investment vehicle, Investec Equity Partners (IEP),
has been created in which Investec will hold a 45% stake alongside other
strategic investors who will hold the remaining 55%. Investec Principal
Investments will transfer certain portfolio companies to this new vehicle and
IEP will resultantly raise an additional ZAR10 billion of new equity and debt
capital to grow the underlying companies transferred and to take advantage
of future investment opportunities. This transaction is subject to regulatory
approval. It is intended that all Investec Principal Investments staff will
transfer to the new company from 1 January 2016.

Operating Responsibilities
Investec, in pursuit of sustained growth across its businesses, has
restructured certain operating responsibilities with the aim of achieving the
following broad objectives:

- To maintain differentiated businesses that are integrated and coordinated
  under the Investec brand, while focused on providing the best solution
  for the client;
- To facilitate the growth of businesses with direct management
  responsibility and accountability;
- To ensure talented future leaders are in place for the long-term success
  of the group.

Investec has always maintained a policy of growing talent from within. The
majority of the group's leaders have an extensive history with the group
and are valued for their institutional knowledge and expertise. Key global
businesses are supported by experienced management teams who are
responsible for driving the performance of those businesses.

Set out below are the following operating responsibilities (certain of which are
subject to regulatory approval):

Group
Stephen Koseff remains Group Chief Executive Officer and Bernard Kantor
remains Group Managing Director. They continue to focus on group strategy,
development and growth of the Investec global businesses, and the
positioning of the group among all stakeholders.

Glynn Burger continues as Group Risk and Finance Director with Nishlan
Samujh performing the role of Group Chief Financial Officer.

Specialist Bank
Investec is consolidating its integration strategy in the Specialist Bank.
Ciaran Whelan and David van der Walt become joint Heads of the Specialist
Bank. Ciaran Whelan will focus on private banking and David van der Walt
on corporate and institutional banking. David van der Walt remains Chief
Executive Officer of Investec Bank plc.

In South Africa, Richard Wainwright becomes Chief Executive Officer of
Investec Bank Limited and together with Glynn Burger, the Joint Geographic
Head of South Africa.

Andy Leith becomes Executive Chairman of IEP, the new South African
investment vehicle (refer above). He will be actively involved and responsible
for this business and continues as a Senior Group Executive of Investec
Limited, where he will focus on key client relationships and the integration of
Investec's offering to these clients.

Robin Magid and Nick Riley remain Head of Property Trading and
Development and Chief Executive Officer of Investec Property Fund,
respectively.

Asset Management
Hendrik du Toit continues as Chief Executive Officer of Investec Asset
Management.

Wealth & Investment
Steve Elliot remains Global Head of the Wealth & Investment business, with
Jonathan Wragg and Henry Blumenthal being responsible for the UK and
South African businesses, respectively.

Outlook
Investec is positioning itself for sustained growth with an enhanced
operational focus. The group has successfully implemented its key strategic
initiatives and continues to develop its core businesses in its principal
markets. The macro environment is uncertain as global equity markets
remain volatile and, in South Africa, social and economic challenges
persist. Investec, nevertheless, remains positive. Current levels of activity
are supporting performance as the group focuses on providing value for
shareholders and an exceptional experience for clients.

Notes to the commentary section above
Presentation of financial information
Investec operates under a Dual Listed Companies (DLC) structure with
primary listings of Investec plc on the London Stock Exchange and Investec
Limited on the JSE Limited.

In terms of the contracts constituting the DLC structure, Investec plc and
Investec Limited effectively form a single economic enterprise in which
the economic and voting rights of ordinary shareholders of the companies
are maintained in equilibrium relative to each other. The directors of the
two companies consider that for financial reporting purposes, the fairest
presentation is achieved by combining the results and financial position of
both companies.

Accordingly, the interim results for Investec plc and Investec Limited present the
results and financial position of the combined DLC group under International
Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), denominated in Pounds Sterling. In
the commentary above, all references to Investec or the group relate to the
combined DLC group comprising Investec plc and Investec Limited.

Foreign currency impact
The group's reporting currency is Pounds Sterling. Certain of the group's
operations are conducted by entities outside the UK. The results of
operations and the financial position of the individual companies are
reported in the local currencies in which they are domiciled, including Rands,
Australian Dollars, Euros and US Dollars. These results are then translated
into Pounds Sterling at the applicable foreign currency exchange rates for
inclusion in the group's combined consolidated financial statements. In the
case of the income statement, the weighted average rate for the relevant
period is applied and, in the case of the balance sheet, the relevant closing
rate is used.

The following table sets out the movements in certain relevant exchange
rates against Pounds Sterling over the period:

                    Six months to       Year to     Six months to

Sale of Investec Bank (Australia) Limited
The sale of Investec Bank (Australia) Limited's Professional Finance and Asset
Finance and Leasing businesses and its deposit book to Bank of Queensland
Limited was effective 31 July 2014 for cash proceeds of GBP122 million.
This resulted in the derecognition of approximately GBP1.7 billion of assets
and approximately GBP1.7 billion of liabilities associated with the businesses
sold. The group continues to have a presence in Australia, focusing on its
core activities of Specialised Finance, Corporate Advisory, Property Fund
Management and Asset Management. The remaining business operates as
a non-banking subsidiary of the Investec group. As a result, the group is no
longer reporting the activities of its Australian businesses separately with these
activities now reported under the "UK and Other" geographical segment and
the "UK and Other" Specialist Banking segment.

Sales of Kensington Group plc and Start Mortgage Holdings
Limited
On 9 September 2014 the group announced the sale of its UK intermediated
mortgage business Kensington Group plc ("Kensington") together with
certain other Investec mortgage assets to funds managed by Blackstone
Tactical Opportunities Advisors L.L.C. and TPG Special Situations Partners
for GBP180 million in cash based on a tangible net asset value of the
business of GBP165 million at 31 March 2014. This transaction became
effective on 30 January 2015.

On 15 September 2014 the group announced the sale of its Irish
intermediated mortgage business Start Mortgage Holdings Limited ("Start")
together with certain other Irish mortgage assets to an affiliate of Lone Star
Funds. This transaction became effective on 4 December 2014.

This resulted in the derecognition of approximately GBP4.1 billion of assets
and approximately GBP2 billion of external liabilities associated with these
businesses sold.

As part of the sale of Kensington, a final net settlement amount was paid
after the 31 March 2015 year end. As a result of this payment, a further loss
before taxation of GBP4.7 million was recognised during the period.

Financial instruments carried at fair value
The table below analyses recurring fair value measurements for financial assets and financial liabilities. These fair value measurements are categorised into
different levels in the fair value hierarchy based on the inputs to the valuation technique used. The different levels are identified as follows:

Level 1 – quoted (unadjusted) prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 – inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (ie as prices) or indirectly (ie derived
from prices)

Level 3 – inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

Assets and liabilities related to the long-term assurance business attributable to policyholders have been excluded from the analysis as the change in fair value
of related assets is attributable to policyholders. These are all classified as level 1.

* The sensitivity of the fair value of liabilities arising on securitisation of other assets has been considered together with other securitised assets.
** The price-earnings multiple has been stressed on an investment by investment basis in order to obtain the aggressive and conservative valuations.
^ These valuation sensitivities have been stressed individually using varying scenario based techniques to obtain the aggressive and conservative valuations.

In determining the value of level 3 financial instruments, the following are the
principal inputs that can require judgement:

Credit spreads
Credit spreads reflect the additional yield that a market participant would
demand for taking exposure to the credit risk of a counterparty. The credit
spread for an instrument forms part of the yield used in a discounted cash
flow calculation. In general a significant increase in a credit spread in isolation
will result in a movement in fair value that is unfavourable for the holder of
a financial asset. It is an unobservable input into a discounted cash flow
valuation.

Discount rates
Discount rates are the interest rates used to discount future cash flows in a
discounted cash flow valuation method. The discount rate takes into account
time value of money and uncertainty of cash flows.

Volatilities
Volatility is a key input in the valuation of derivative products containing
optionality. Volatility is a measure of the variability or uncertainty in returns
for a given derivative exposure. It represents an estimate of how much a
particular underlying instrument, parameter or index will change in value over
time. Volatilities are a key input into Black Scholes valuation method.

Cash flows
Cash flows relate to the future cash flows which can be expected from the
instrument and requires judgement. Cash flows are inputs into a discounted
cash flow valuation.

EBITDA
A company's estimated earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and
amortisation. This is the main input into a price earnings multiple valuation
method.

Price earnings multiple
The price-to-earnings ratio is an equity valuation multiple. It is a key driver in
the valuation of unlisted investments.
