Africa Means Business

With Africa poised to become one of the world’s fastest growing regions by 2050, we know that Africa means business. Our track record and experience gives us an unrivalled understanding of Africa’s unique mix of countries, cultures and currencies. This coupled with our innovative digital capabilities makes us your partner of choice in Africa.

At Standard Bank we are committed to driving growth in Africa. As co-sponsor of the inaugural UK-Africa Investment Summit, held in January this year, we worked towards creating new lasting partnerships between UK and African businesses, governments and institutions to deliver more investment, jobs and growth. Our participation at the World Economic Forum in Davos saw us join key stakeholders to promote the African growth agenda.

Our insights into the continent are unparalleled. The Standard Bank Economy 2020 covers the outlook for the global, sub-Saharan and South African markets. Goolam Ballim, Chief Economist, Standard Bank Group, shares his understanding of the factors impacting the growth of global, sub-Saharan and South African economies.

Africa means business and so do we.
