Purpose and strategy

Standard Bank belief in Africa is rooted in the vast possibilities and opportunities it presents. Standard Bank navigates these opportunities with integrated thinking, aligning our purpose and strategic approach to emerging trends, ensuring that the execution of our strategy creates enduring value.

Standard Bank Background

The bank’s origins can be traced to 1862, when a group of businessmen led by the prominent South African Politician John Paterson who formed a bank in London initially under the name Standard Bank of British South Africa.

Stanbic Bank clients range from individuals, to businesses of all sizes, high net worth families and large multinational corporates and institutions. We’re passionate about creating growth in Africa. Bringing true, meaningful value to our clients and the communities we serve and creating a real sense of purpose for you.

In 1992 the bank acquired the operations of ANZ Grindlays Bank in eight African countries. Most of the newly acquired banks were renamed Stanbic Bank, to avoid confusion with the former parent (and now competitor), Standard Chartered, which continued to operate in Africa.

Several more banks in Africa were acquired during the 1990s, and adopted the Stanbic name. Standard Bank now trades under the name Stanbic Bank in Botswana, DRC, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

In 1969 the Standard Bank Investment Corporation (now Standard Bank Group) was established as the holding company of the South African bank. During the 1970s and 1980s Standard Chartered gradually reduced its shareholding, and sold its remaining 39% stake in Standard Bank Group in 1987, transferring complete ownership of the holding company to South African investors and in particular Liberty Life.

Standard Bank’s administrative head office moves from Cape Town to Pretoria.

Our new head office complex, Standard Bank Centre in Simmonds Street, Johannesburg, is officially opened on 6 August.
