Scope’s issuer rating on Standard Chartered is based on a consolidated view of the group and reflects a highly diversified business, with a commercial banking focus. Management is also pursuing growth in financial markets and wealth management activities and is increasingly focused on digitalisation.
“There is an increasing management focus on facilitating sustainable finance and digital capabilities to support growth,” said Pauline Lambert, executive director in Scope’s financial institutions team. “However, the geographical breadth of operations as well as the focus on faster growing markets exposes the group to greater governance risks.”
