Leading the way

“2008 was a year of extraordinary dislocation and disruption in financial markets. Banks collapsed or were rescued by governments, markets fell precipitously and economic growth stalled. Given our conservative business model, our clear strategy and our focus on the basics, Standard Chartered has weathered the storm relatively well. We have not been unscathed but we have continued to be open for business for customers and once again delivered record profits.”
