Standard Bank is a discerning investor in high potential companies in emerging markets. Through leveraging our network and franchise in our core markets, we are able to access opportunities to partner with management teams and other investors, investing significant amounts of equity into each transaction.
Our private equity strategy encompasses direct on-balance sheet investments as well as partnerships with leading institutions in the market to create funds of significant scale.
Currently our global private equity business has funds under management of over
$1 billion, and our strategic aim is to significantly increase this as we build a leading emerging markets private equity franchise alongside our banking franchise.
