The Standard Bank of British South Africa was formed in Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 1862 and incorporated in London. After 148 years, we’re now one of the largest banking groups in Africa and a leading light in emerging markets on the global stage.
By the early 1960s, the group was owned by Standard Bank Limited in London, a holding company which later became Standard Chartered Bank plc. In 1969, the Standard Bank Group was established as the Standard Bank Investment Corporation, the holding company of the South African business. In 1987 however, complete ownership was transferred to South Africa when Standard Chartered sold its 39% share. Since then, we’ve expanded our operations through both natural growth and acquisitions, initially in Africa and then across the world.
Standard Bank has been making great things happen in Africa for over 150 years, yet there’s never been a more exciting time to be a part of our story. Join our international team and you could move your career forward from the start.
Standard Bank Group has a 151-year history in South Africa and started building a franchise in the rest of Africa in the early 1990s. In some countries we operate under the name Stanbic Bank.
We currently operate in 18 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.
Our strategy is to build the leading African financial services organisation using all our competitive advantages to the full.
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.
We organise ourselves as three business units but present ourselves as one. Our three main pillars of business are Personal & Business Banking, Corporate & Investment Banking, and Private Clients.
The people of Standard Bank Group are passionate about economics, finance, risk management, investments, emerging markets, savings, business trends and offshore investments.
We continue to ensure that Standard Bank, as a brand, and the people whose lives we touch move forward toward growth and excellence.
