Standard Chartered in South Africa

Standard Chartered’s history in South Africa dates back to over 150 years. In 1987, Standard Chartered divested from South Africa in support of the call for change, but later returned as an independent entity with a representative office in 1992.

In 2003, Standard Chartered acquired a full service banking licence, and has since embarked on a very positive journey that today positions the South African business as a leading international bank with a Global Banking focus.

Standard Chartered South Africa pursues a focused network strategy offering corporate clients support in cross-border capital, investment opportunities, assistance with expansion into new markets and facilitation of strategic partnerships. Leveraging our unique footprint and international banking expertise in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, Standard Chartered offers unparalleled support for South African companies and multinationals.
