Investec Group's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Investec Group.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Investec Group's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 26.93

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Investec Group's overall score of 26.93 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 28th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Investec Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Investec Group's environmental score

Environmental score: 5.89/100

Investec Group's environmental score of 5.89 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Investec Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Investec Group's social score

Social score: 15.92/100

Investec Group's social score of 15.92 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Investec Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Investec Group's governance score

Governance score: 16.61/100

Investec Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Investec Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Investec Group's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Investec Group scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Investec Group has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Investec Group share dividends

23%

Dividend payout ratio: 22.53% of net profits

Recently Investec Group has paid out, on average, around 22.53% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Investec Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Investec Group's case, that would currently equate to about R0.129 per share.

While Investec Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Investec Group is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Investec Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Investec Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as R2606.7491 up to R6159. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

INP.JSE volatility(beta: 1.23)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (JSE average) beta is 1, while Investec Group's is 1.2301. This would suggest that Investec Group's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
