Our social and economic impact

We aim to play a key role in stimulating economic and social development across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Our social and economic impact

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.
