A truly international bank, Standard Chartered PLC emerged from the joining of the Standard Bank of British South Africa and the Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China in 1969. Today the company has over 1700 branches in more than 70 countries globally including those of Asia Pacific, Africa, the Middle East, the UK and Europe as well as the Americas. In 1986 the bank saw off a hostile takeover bid by UK bank, Lloyds and since then Standard Chartered have tended to focus on developing strong, profitable franchises throughout Asia, Africa and the Middle East – the areas in which they still have the largest influence.

The bank's main focuses are on corporate, consumer and institutional banking although they also act as a Treasury bank in some countries. Since 2000 Standard Chartered PLC have acquired a number of subsidiary companies including Grindlays Bank from the ANZ Group and Hong Kong's Chase Consumer Banking. They also bought the international banking division of American Express in 2008 which gave them an even bigger percentage of the international banking market. Their regular acquisitions have helped to strengthen their market presence throughout Asia and the Middle East whilst also bolstering their share prices and making them a household name in other parts of the globe. Standard Chartered have been, for the last 12 months at least, consistently placed in the top 25 FTSE100 companies and their continued growth currently makes them one of the largest international banks to date.

Strong Financials Boost FTSE

News - Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Strength in the mining sector and gains in financials helped to boost the FTSE 100 yesterday. The UK’s leading index was at a three-month low point, following fears about tensions between North Korea and the USA. As the tensions appeared to ease, at least briefly, investors returned their focus to the more mundane, and individual stocks got stronger.

FTSE Rebounds after Korea Troubles

News - Monday, August 14, 2017

After a difficult week triggered by tensions between the US and North Korea, the FTSE 100 has rebounded, climbing by 45.34 points, up to 7,355.30. Monday was a quiet day for fundamentals, but broker recommendations were enough to spark some movement. Last week, escalating tension and rhetoric between the US and North Korea had spread fear across the markets, and pushed many investors to look towards gold and the more defensive stocks, as well as traditional safe-haven currencies, dragging the FTSE 100 and other similar markets down.
