Why us?

Having put down its roots in the Eastern Cape in 1862, Standard Bank is one of South Africa’s oldest companies. But while we’re immensely proud of our history, it’s our future which really gets us excited.

With its natural wealth, its emerging economies and its entrepreneurial culture, Africa’s potential for growth is vast and we believe we have a crucial part to play in helping it realise that potential.

Why Standard Bank?

Because we know Africa.

Our people call it home and it’s their knowledge, passion and ambition which means we’re uniquely placed to connect Africa to the world.

It all starts with you.
