We’re Here for good

The Bank has been in operation since 1915 in Cameroon, when it was known as a Branch of the Bank of British West Africa. Today Standard Chartered Bank Cameroon is one of the leading International banks in the country.

The Bank was established in 1915 as Branch of the Bank of British West Africa. The name was changed in 1965 and became Standard Bank of West Africa (SBWA) Cameroon. In 1974, the SBWA branch closed in Cameroon. Standard Chartered Bank acquired a majority shareholding, controlling interest of Boston Bank Cameroon in 1986. Six years after the merger, Standard Chartered Cameroon acquired certain assets of the former bank BCC Cameroon S.A.
