Fighting financial crime
We’re tackling financial crime head-on by making the financial system a hostile environment for criminals
We’re taking on financial crime
Financial systems can transform lives for good, but they can also fuel harmful activities like terrorism, trafficking and corruption.
At Standard Chartered, we have a unique opportunity to drive sustainable growth across our markets. But that also means we have a key role to play in tackling financial crime.
How we’re leading the fight
We’re building stronger defences through compliance and nurturing a culture where each one of us sees combating financial crime as part of our daily work.
Our mission doesn’t stop at our door. We’re teaming up with banks, governments and regulators around the world to raise the bar across the industry and devise innovative ways to stop criminals in their tracks.

Trafficking and exploiting people is a vast, complex, and highly profitable global business, generating illegal profits of $150 billion a year.
The illegal wildlife trade is not just a threat to biodiversity. It also has links with cross-border organised crime – fuelling corruption, violence and poverty.
Money underpins all terrorist activity. Without it, there can be no training, recruitment, facilitation or support for terrorist groups.
