Africa investor opportunity


Partner with us to realise the potential of Africa
Driving Investment in Africa

As Africa's largest bank by assets, Standard Bank plays a crucial role in driving development across this continent we call home. We connect all key stakeholders (across governments, foreign investors and foreign and local businesses) in supporting the growth and development of modern, integrated and sustainable economies. And with leading capabilities in understanding and mitigating risks, we are able to advise our clients on how best to approach business in, for and across Africa.

Despite the commodities crisis and currency instability, many sub-Saharan African economies are geared for above global GDP growth, which continues to outpace advanced economies and many emerging market peers.

As a banking partner that knows Africa, Standard Bank unlocks opportunities in Africa, a continent that is definitely open for business.
