A place where you can grow

The Bank's business journey in Indonesia has gone through a long history. This began when The Chartered Bank (now called Standard Chartered Bank) started a business in the field of commercial banks through the Borneo Company in Batavia (now called Jakarta) in 1859. In May 1863, The Chartered Bank began to operate independently. This effort made The Chartered Bank the first British foreign exchange bank to open a business entity in the Dutch East Indies (now called Indonesia).

Subsequently, in 1965, the branch office in Jakarta was closed during the attempted coup d'état. However, business activities resumed in 1968 after Standard Chartered Bank Indonesia obtained a business license through the Letter of the Minister of Finance No. D. dated October 1, 1968 and the Decree of the Board of Directors of Bank Negara Indonesia (formerly the central bank of Indonesia) No. 4/22/KEP. DIR dated October 2, 1968 to conduct foreign exchange activities and banking activities.
