Nedbank provides a concise and insightful overview of the company vision, strategy – highlighting the particular sustainability points within the 'deep green aspirations' which underpin strategy. This is supplemented with the 'investment case' which highlights the key elements of the business which differentiates the business and positions the business to deliver the company strategy.
