Early careers Taiwan

Standard Chartered in Taiwan

Our first Taiwan branch opened in 1985. In 2006, we acquired Hsinchu International Bank. The integration of the two banks was marked in July 2007, and we established largest network in Taiwan. The amalgamation with American Express Bank and the “Good Bank” part of Asia Trust and Investment Corporation in August and December 2008, respectively, further enhanced our footprint in Taiwan and demonstrated our  strong commitment to the Taiwan market. Today we have more than 3,000 colleagues to support our clients and each other.
