Standard Chartered Bank

THE SCOOP

A truly international investment bank

Standard Chartered PLC was created in 1969 by the merger of the Standard Bank of British South Africa and the Chartered Bank of India, Australia, and China. Both banks trace their roots to the 1800s, when British trade activities created a need for banking and financial institutions throughout the far reaches of the British Empire. A period of peaceful growth lasted into modern times-until 1986-when Britain's Lloyds Bank attempted a hostile takeover. Standard Chartered is listed on the London and Hong Kong stock exchanges. The London-headquartered group derives more than 90 per cent of its operating profits from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The bank's European operations serve as a bridge to emerging markets. It has more than 1,600 branches in over 70 countries and employs nearly 49,000 people.
