Wednesday 18th May 2011. 6.00pm for 6.30pm

Walk into Standard Chartered’s London Head Office; you will find a piece of Asia transplanted into the Square Mile. Along the walls and throughout the lobby adorn many Asian old and modern artefacts.

The evening will start in the Auditorium with a welcome and presentation about the bank. Followed by a tour of the building which will finish on the tenth floor with a drinks and canapés reception.

Standard Chartered was formed in 1969 through a merger of two banks: The Standard Bank of British South Africa, founded in 1863, and the Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China, founded in 1853. Both companies were keen to capitalise on the huge expansion of trade and the financing of goods between Europe, Asia and Africa.

Operating as the Standard Chartered First Bank in South Korea they have a nationwide network of 368 branches with a vision of becoming Korea’s leading bank. Their clients in Korea use the bank’s global network as a bridge between Korea and international economies.

We express our gratitude to Standard Chartered Bank for their generosity in opening their offices to members of the Anglo-Korean Society.
