The group was established in 1974. Investec focuses on delivering distinctive profitable solutions for its clients in three core areas of activity namely, Asset Management, Wealth & Investment and Specialist Banking.

ClusterSeven’s end-user computing management solutions enable financial services firms and other leading institutions to maintain the transparency and integrity of their spreadsheets and data files in order to increase productivity and business insight and to reduce operational risk.

Bernard Fromson, Head of Analytics, Corporate and Institutional Banking at Investec, said: “In addition to improving the operational control and governance of our business spreadsheet activity, we are particularly interested in using ClusterSeven’s software to explore new business trends through greater analysis of our financial data.”

Ralph Baxter, CEO of ClusterSeven, said: “We are delighted that Investec has selected us to enhance its business and data operations. Many high value and specialist business activities are dependent on spreadsheets to complement core systems. Increasing emphasis on risk management and data quality has exposed spreadsheet management as a major opportunity to reduce operational risk and deliver efficiencies.”
