Shareholder Meetings and Events

Virtual Retail Shareholder Event 2020

Given the challenges of the COVID-19 outbreak, and along with many other companies, this year’s Standard Chartered PLC Annual General Meeting (AGM) in May 2020 had to be held as a procedural meeting to enable us to meet our statutory obligations. Shareholders were asked not to attend but instead to vote and submit any questions in advance.

At the time, we did say that we would try and hold a retail shareholder event with the Board later in the year should this be possible. As COVID-19 restrictions continue to make a retail shareholder event in person challenging, we have decided to host a virtual event instead.

Shareholders are invited to this event which will take place on Monday 23 November 2020 at 11.30am UK time (7.30pm Hong Kong time) via conference call. Questions and answers (Q&A) will be facilitated through a web-based platform, Pigeonhole Live.

To attend the shareholder event please pre-register by following the instructions set out in the correspondence sent to the registered holder.

Further details regarding how to use Pigeonhole Live can be found here.

AGM 2020

The AGM was duly convened on Wednesday 6 May 2020 at 11:00am London time (6:00pm Hong Kong time) at our head office, 1 Basinghall Avenue, London EC2V 5DD.

The AGM was held as a purely procedural meeting, covering only the formal business. Shareholders were asked not to attend the AGM and instead vote in advance.

The Board of Standard Chartered PLC decided after careful consideration to withdraw the recommendation to pay a final dividend for 2019 of 20 cents per ordinary share. Consequently, resolution 2 in the Notice of AGM was withdrawn and was not put to the meeting.
