Standard Chartered (Stanchart), the UK-based banking group, operates primarily in Asia, with growing operations in the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. It has more than 500 offices in over 50 countries. Stanchart offers a range of consumer banking and institutional banking services.

It has taken advantage of the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s to buy up operations in Indonesia and Thailand. The bank has also moved into China. Stanchart has positioned itself as an independent, medium-sized group focusing on emerging markets. The bank also offers indigenous businesses and consumers, a stable alternative to sometimes- unreliable local banks.

Stanchart faces many risks-credit, country, foreign exchange, interest rate, liquidity, operational, business, regulatory, legal and reputational. The case outlines these risks and the mechanisms Stanchart employs to deal with them. MBA students, as part of the business strategy course, will find the case useful in understanding how risks are managed in a global bank.
