In the report, Standard Bank Group Chairman Fred Phaswana has this to say: "Standard Bank’s 150-year heritage in South Africa and unique competitive position in the rest of Africa enables us to connect our customers to opportunities within Africa, between Africa and other selected emerging markets, as well as to pools of capital across the developed world.

"Underpinning our competitive advantages is the strategic relationship we have with Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, which connects us to one of the world’s fastest growth engines. Our core businesses are robust and we continue to position them for sustainable profitability in response to changing competitive and regulatory environments both locally and globally.

"Moving forward, our strategic priorities remain unaltered and we are pursuing a range of opportunities for future growth aligned to our positioning as a real economy bank.”
