Standard Bank Group is an Africa-based financial service provider with a history spanning more than 152 years. We currently operate in 20 countries on the African continent, including South Africa, as well as in other selected emerging markets. You will also find Standard Bank Group in 12 countries outside of Africa. In some countries we operate under the name Stanbic Bank.


Africa is our home and we are committed to driving her growth. We aim to be the leading financial services organisation in, for and across Africa, delivering exceptional client experiences and superior value.


At Standard Bank Group we focus on connecting other selected emerging markets to Africa and to each other, applying our sector expertise, particularly in natural resources, globally. Our key differentiator is people who are passionate about our strategy, wherever in the world they are based.


Our clients (be they individuals, small business, corporates or governments) benefit from our knowledge and expertise in emerging markets, coupled with our global outlook.


With our passion for economics, finance, risk management, investments, emerging markets, savings, business trends and offshore investments, Standard Bank Group is determined to help you reach your potential as you move towards excellence, growth and happiness.
