Standard Chartered Bank (Vietnam) Limited
In Vietnam, Standard Chartered’s history can be traced back to 1904 when the Bank opened its first branch in Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City).
Following the official approval from the State Bank of Vietnam, effective 1 August 2009, Standard Chartered commenced operations in its locally incorporated entity – Standard Chartered Bank (Vietnam) Limited. Local Incorporation was an important milestone in Standard Chartered’s development in Vietnam.
Standard Chartered Bank (Vietnam) Ltd. now has three branches and employs nearly 700 staff. The Bank provides a full suite of Wholesale Banking products and services to corporates and financial institutions. We also have a wide range of Consumer Banking services to serve individuals and small and medium enterprises.
We are always striving to serve our customers better. In 2011, the Bank has offered a number of new benefits to its clients such as extending working hours on weekdays and weekends, the partnership with the Smartlink network that allows customers to have access to over 5,000 ATMs nationwide.
As an international bank, we bring our international expertise and experience in other emerging markets to Vietnam, where it actively contributes to the development of the banking and finance sector in the country.
We have a role in tackling the environmental, social and economic challenges that Vietnam is facing. We do this by helping our clients to manage risk, by providing credit, by facilitating trade and investment flows globally, by promoting sustainable finance and by investing in communities.
The Bank also plays an active role in the Vietnamese community and has demonstrated this through many social and charitable activities.
