Standard Chartered Bank

Standard Chartered South Africa offers Corporate & Institutional Banking products and services to leading multinationals and financial institutions throughout our network.


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.
