We believe we should contribute directly to the economies in which we operate. As the only bank with a strong presence in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, we're uniquely placed to help businesses grow in all three markets.
To understand how we can contribute to these economies and societies, we've commissioned independent studies to assess our socio-economic impact on our markets.
With a presence in Africa spanning 150 years, we play a key role in supporting the region's economy.
We've been in Bangladesh for more than 100 years, and are the oldest and largest foreign bank.
We've been in Ghana over 100 years and are consistently ranked among the top three banks in the country.
We have a deep presence in Indonesia, having set up in 1863. We also have a stake in the 9th largest bank.
