Today is Black Friday and Cyber Monday is just around the corner. They can be great times to bag a bargain, but it is also crucial to be a savvy shopper and take steps to stay safe from fraud. Remember that criminals spend hours researching you for their scams, hoping you’ll let your guard down for just a moment. Follow the #TakeFive advice to protect yourself:
Contact us immediately if you think you’ve fallen for a fraud or scam and report it to Action Fraud. For more information and tips on how to keep safe from fraud, visit our fraud page.
Please be aware that due to the current situation in Ukraine there is an increase in fake websites and emails pretending to be fundraising for the victims of the crisis.
If you are wishing to donate to charities, remember to always use well-known organisations with credible websites. Type the URL (website address) into your browser rather than using search engines, which could include fake websites. Never follow links in emails you were not expecting to receive.
Please take care if you receive an email, and ask yourself:
If the answer to any of the above is ‘yes’ then it may be a fraud attempt and you should take extra care.
If you are unsure of the authenticity:
End the call or delete the email. Do not download any attachments. Only visit credible well-known websites by typing in the URL rather than following links or using a search engine and contact the organisation directly by your usual means, if you already have a relationship with them.
Remember: it is always okay to reject, refuse or ignore requests for your personal information or requests for money.

Our standard Tariff of Charges will change on 1 July 2022. A copy of the revised tariff is available here: Download the updated PDF
Our Tariff of Charges has received a design ‘makeover’. By combining the standard fees and tariffs applicable to personal and non-personal clients into a new consolidated booklet, we hope to make it easier to follow. Our Wealth Planning and Investment Advice fees continue to be available upon request.
The latest update to our online wealth services includes a number of changes that will give you increased flexibility when transacting online or on your mobile app:
Should you have any questions about this change, please contact your private banker or our client services team.
On 15 October 2021, the limit per transaction for contactless cards increased from £45 to £100. The decision was made by HM Treasury and the Financial Conduct Authority following a public consultation and in discussion with the UK retail and banking sectors. It follows on from the successful increase in the limit from £30 to £45 in April 2020.
As a security measure, you will need to input your PIN after 5 transactions, or when the cumulative value of your transactions reaches £300, whichever is sooner.
If you have any concerns about how this change may impact you, have a look at our useful fact vs fiction list here.
The latest improvements to our online wealth services introduce a number of self-service features that give you greater control, increased security, and more convenience.
In addition to the useful ‘view PIN’ facility, you can now:
all through your mobile app or via your desktop. Just go to the ‘More’ menu and select ‘Card management’.
Update your mobile app today to access the new card management features, and please ensure you have given us your current mobile phone number – if in doubt, please contact us.
Your mobile app is up to date when you are using version 6.1.2. You can check your current version by navigating to ‘More’ followed by ‘Important information’. The version number is visible at the bottom of the screen.
New European Union (EU) legislation comes into effect from 3 September 2020.
The Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) is designed to improve corporate governance and encourage long-term engagement among shareholders of companies that have their registered office in the EU and whose shares are traded on EU regulated markets.
If you hold shares in companies within the scope of this directive, you will be notified of corporate events in a timely manner and have the opportunity to vote at general meetings, on issues such as board composition, strategy and directors’ remuneration.
Nedbank Private Wealth will be obliged to share information about the identity of shareholders at a company or share issuer’s request. As is common practice across other jurisdictions, the information we will be asked to share will include the shareholder name, their contact details, and the registration number and number of shares held.
What do clients need to do?
If you haven’t already submitted your ‘decision maker’ nomination form, you can download it here. Please complete it and send it back to us at your earliest convenience.
You may nominate yourself or an appointed third-party with authority over your account, such as an investment adviser. Please ensure you have their agreement for us to contact them. Where you have appointed Nedbank Private Wealth as your discretionary investment manager, we will act as your decision maker on corporate actions within the portfolios we manage on your behalf.
Notifications will be sent by email as this is the preferred means of contact to ensure prompt and direct delivery, so it is important you provide us with your nominated decision maker’s current email address.
Should you wish to nominate someone who does not currently have authority over your account as your decision maker, or you have questions regarding the impact of the Shareholder Rights Directive II, then please contact your private banker, or our client services team.
If you are interested in becoming a client, please complete the form via the ‘become a client’ button below. Alternatively, if you are already a client, or if you have a question about how we help clients in particular circumstances, please use the ‘contact us’ button.
