The go-to bank for African capital
Sub-Saharan Africa is becoming a significant growth region for global equity investors as opportunities in the region outperform traditional investment destinations. The shift aligns with the increasing size, liquidity and sophistication in many equity capital markets in Africa.
Standard Bank understands African markets and opportunities, and we have unrivalled knowledge and expertise in leading African and emerging markets equity transactions. We use local knowledge and international experience to maximise investor demand, both in-country and internationally, to provide our corporate clients with strategic equity advice and execution that is customised to meet their unique requirements. We provide our institutional and consumer clients with comprehensive company and market research, equities trading, derivatives trading and asset management.
We cover a wide range of assets, from major international names to domestic stocks, and are leaders in positioning them to a global investor base. With a leading platform to connect capital flows into, out of and across Africa wherever it is set, we are proud of our role as a conduit for African capital. Our success in sourcing, originating, structuring and executing deals across Africa, both domestically and internationally, has supported significant growth in Standard Bank’s equity platform, counter to the trend for most other trading platforms.
With local product knowledge and strong local and regional relationships, our on-the-ground teams ensure that we understand and can safeguard investments for our clients.
