Happy days for Investec
Corporate financiers got two major deals over the line this week

I hear they are chuffed with life after two major deals they were working on got over the line this week.
Investec were long-time restructuring advisers to Spar-owner BWG, which sold an 80 per cent stake to a South African investor this week.
In conjunction with their colleagues in London, they also worked on the €1.16 billion sale of Tipperary engineering outfit Kentz, which was rubber-stamped on Monday.
