Products We Offer

Foreign Exchange

Innovative foreign exchange (FX) solutions are a key element of Standard Chartered's award-winning financial markets capabilities. Few providers, if any, have the depth and breadth of our FX coverage; none can match our capabilities in emerging markets, illiquid and restricted currencies. Whether you need to manage risk or look at investment opportunities, our superior integrated solutions can make all the difference to your business.

We offer a comprehensive range of solutions from simple strategies executed online, via our Online Treasury (OLT) on Straight2Bank, to sophisticated tailored strategies with our experienced Sales team.

Standard Chartered Bank was the first bank to introduce and trade in FX options products on the Zambian market. We offer such competitive and innovative structured solutions to our clients by combining superior structuring capabilities with an extensive local presence.
