13 October 2017 - Standard Bank Wealth and Investment has been named Africa’s Most Outstanding Global Private Bank for the third consecutive year by Private Banker International, a leading journal for the global wealth industry. The division was also recognised in the Outstanding Philanthropy Offering category. 

The accolades were announced at the 27th Private Banker International Global Wealth Summit and Awards, held in Singapore today, recognising Standard Bank Wealth and Investment’s ongoing commitment to building Africa’s most globally relevant wealth management offering.

Wealth and Investment has a presence throughout South Africa as well as Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Mauritius, Jersey and London. This international footprint, combined with the Standard Bank Group’s own African and international presence, and over a 154-year heritage, empowers the division with the diversification needed to lead a globally effective wealth strategy.

According to Christopher Browne, Global Head of Wealth and Investment at Standard Bank, this extensive footprint is leveraged to provide global wealth solutions that are locally relevant in Africa.

“With our on-the-ground expertise, we understand specific country nuances and their impact on the markets in which we operate. This positions us to support the wealth management ambitions of high-net-worth individuals and families across the continent.

Mr Browne further shares that emphasis is placed on equipping the leaders of tomorrow with financial and investment advice through the division’s international Leadership Academies, which educate the next generation on creating, managing, growing and preserving wealth in an interactive and engaging environment.

The Private Banker International Award follows Standard Bank Wealth and Investment being recognised as Euromoney magazine’s Africa’sBest Bank for Wealth Management in July, further reflecting consistency in delivering solutions that matter. Other Euromoney awards received include Best Bank in South Africa and Best Bank in Uganda.

“We believe that our combination of targeted service strategies, relevant management models and client-centricity sets us apart as the continent’s leading wealth manager, and we are delighted to see these efforts reflected in internationally recognised awards”.
