Standard Chartered in Vietnam

  • In Vietnam, Standard Chartered’s history can be traced back to 1904 when the Bank opened its first branch in Saigon (now is Ho Chi Minh City). We believe in the long-term prospect of Vietnam and are fully committed to the Vietnamese market and our clients and customers since coming back to the country in 1990.
  • On August 1, 2009, we commenced operations in our locally incorporated entity – Standard Chartered Bank (Vietnam) Limited, an important milestone of Standard Chartered’s development in Vietnam. The bank currently has four branches (two in Hanoi and two in HCMC). Its Head Office is based in Hanoi.
  • We bring our international expertise and experience in Asia, Africa and the Middle East to Vietnam, building a broad business that helps to develop the Vietnamese financial service sector as well as helping clients to develop their businesses.
  • The Bank provides a full suite of banking products and services for corporates, financial institutions as well as small and medium enterprises and individuals. We also play an active role in building the communities through many programs that promote social and economic development focusing on health, youth and financial education.
