Africa is a thriving environment, full of natural resources and favourable demographics, which presents high growth opportunities for investors worldwide. By launching on WeChat, we aim to help Chinese audiences unlock Africa’s vast investment potential by leveraging Standard Bank’s African expertise and global footprint across our key international markets, including China. We frequently post WeChat updates on a range of content, including African market insights, industry trends, corporate developments and interesting cultural information. So if growth in Africa is your ambition, then join us on WeChat and start exploring the continent we call home.

What makes us different

As Africa's largest banking group by assets and earnings, we operate in 20 countries on the African continent. We are also present in six international markets, including Greater China, with offices in Beijing and Hong Kong. Combining our strong local presence with our global capabilities, we support the aspirations of our Chinese clients looking for a banking partner to generate investment growth in key African sectors such as mining and metals, oil and gas, consumer, and power and infrastructure. We also support manufacturing, retail, and small, medium and micro enterprises.

Our unique partnership with ICBC − the world’s biggest bank by assets − enables us to identify, link and leverage African and Chinese opportunities to achieve maximum investment returns and economic growth for your business.
