We have had a presence in Europe and the Americas for over 160 years, employing more than 5,000 people in 14 different countries. We take pride in our ability to bridge the physical distance between our clients based in the region who are looking to expand into and across our network, and vice versa. The Europe and Americas region is a centre of expertise for the Bank’s major product groups, allowing us to provide a wide range of services, platforms and capabilities to meet the growing needs of our clients.

As one of the bank’s fastest growing client franchises, our business across Europe and the Americas is pivotal to delivering the strategic aspirations of the bank. We opened our UK office in 1853 and our London headquarters is the main centre in Europe for Corporate & Institutional Banking client coverage. It is also a booking centre, along with Jersey for our Private Banking business and Priority Banking and Retail Banking services are provided out of Jersey and in the Falklands. Our EU hub, Standard Chartered Bank AG, which is located in Frankfurt, strengthens our presence across Europe and enables us to better serve our strategic and evolving European client base. Standard Chartered is also present in multiple locations across North and South America, with our Americas headquarters located in New York.

Our Americas franchise, through our Corporate and Institutional Banking business, is committed to providing financial products and services to multi-national corporations, financial institutions and development organisations.
