Expert assessment of Standard Chartered Private Bank

Standard Chartered is a very large, top tier private bank with a very well-known brand, making them a good option for senior international investors.

However the traditional values you would expect from a private bank, such as trust and an uncompromising duty of care, are harder to achieve, the larger the outfit.

Standard Chartered is also not able to go to market to find you the best possible solutions, since it's only able to push its own products and services, which also makes it more expensive.

If you are already a private banking client of Standard Chartered, we would recommend a no-obligation Second Opinion to ensure you are on track to reach your ideal future.

Additionally, we are happy to review the financial plan that has led to the investment portfolio you currently have.
