Standard Chartered - GBP Company profile

What is Standard Chartered?

Standard Chartered Bank is the amalgamation of two banks – Standard Bank of British South Africa and the Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China. The merger occurred and resulted in the bank’s foundation in 1969. Allowing the two companies to expand their business across emerging markets in Africa, Asia and Europe.

What’s the history of the two banks?

Before the merger the two banks operated as separate entities.

The Chartered Bank was founded by James Wilson, the name was derived from the grant of a Royal Charter by Queen Victoria that allowed its formation. The first branches opened in Mumbai, then known as Bombay, Kolkata and Shanghai in 1858.

Its presence soon grew with branches opened in Hong Kong and Singapore in 1859. Its acquisition of the Eastern Bank in 1957 allowed it to expand into the Gulf.

The Standard Bank was founded by John Paterson in 1862, with its original headquarters in Cape Colony, South Africa. Soon the bank expanded and by 1953, it had over 600 sites across Southern, Central and Eastern Africa. Its 1965 merger with the Bank of West Africa allowed it to gain access to a wider market, including Ghana, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.

I have been usingCapital.comm platform for a year now. I did have some issues with using the platform in the earlier days but I received excellent support from Capital.com guiding me in the process of learning about the platform and put me on track. I am very happy with this platform and find it very easy to use for my trading needs. Capital.com also arranged a series of trading webinars last summer, which I attended and benefited from.

JEYAKUMAR

great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben

Capital.com is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the capital.com App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
