Inspired by a true son of Africa


Celebrating Nelson Mandela is to celebrate Africa's greatness icons. He was a man who inspired Africa, reminding us that no matter our challenges, we're able to rise above them.


Africa's potential is boundless. As a bank deeply rooted in Africa, we believe Africa's progress, is our progress. 


With more than 154 years experience in Africa,  it is evident that shared progress and success can propel entire communities forward. Read more about our commitment to Africa's growth here.


Here is how we are recommitting to Africa’s growth


  • Our Standard Bank Namibia team sponsored an astonishing N$150 000 towards the Africa Day 2017 commemorations.
  • Our work with the Global Fund to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics, is how we strive towards helping improve the health of communities in which we operate.
  • Facilitating global trade in Africa is critical to creating a thriving economy on our continent. This is why our recent launch of our Africa China Banking Center aims to boost and unlock trade opportunities between Africa and China.
  • With new disruptive technologies changing the way that energy generation and distribution is understood and funded in Africa, we’re helping with financing solutions to aid the power and infrastructure sector across the continent. Similarly we have the expertise and knowledge to navigate investment opportunities in industries like Ethiopia’s growing manufacturing sector.
  • Making a real impact on the continent is at the core of all that we do. We are proud to deliver universal banking solutions that help move individuals, companies and countries forward while driving conversations that unlock Africa’s economic potential.

 Our strategy is centred on our commitment to Africa and directs our growth and evolution for the shared benefit of our clients, our people and all our stakeholders. Read more about our report to society here.
