Standard Chartered’s strategy of development

UK-based international banking group Standard Chartered announced multiple deals and launches in the last couple of months, across different geographic areas across the globe. 

In September 2023, the company announced its collaboration with Allex & Overy, in order to publish a payment guideline, aiming to outline payment regulatory frameworks. The Guide to Payment Regulations was developed to summarise the prevailing structure and related licensing schemes for e-money solutions and payments. The release also covered eight key markets in the region of Asia and focused on improving the manner in which corporates and fintechs navigate the payments landscape. In addition, it also offered the multiple possible factors that can have an impact on businesses as they continue their procedure of global expansion. 

The markets that were included in the guideline were Mainland China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, and Taiwan. The companies planned to launch an upgraded version that will include other seven markets. 

Earlier in August 2023, Malaysia-based payment service firm GHL Systems announced its partnership with Standard Chartered Malaysia, in order to deliver a comprehensive suite of payment solutions to its clients and merchants.

Throughout the deal, both of the enterprises aimed to allow traders to access streamlined payment services in order to improve their offerings and capabilities. Moreover, it also focused on providing them with multiple benefits and advantages, following their commitment to improve payment experiences and encourage the development of payment digitalisation within the country.
