Standard Chartered Bank Announces 4000 Job Cuts; Announces Departure of Executive Directors
Jan 9 15
Standard Chartered chief executive Peter Sands moved aggressively to reverse the Asia-focused bank's fortunes by closing the bulk of its global equities business and axing 4,000 jobs in retail banking. The lender said it was dismantling its stockbroking, equity research and equity listing desks worldwide, becoming one of the first global banks to get out of the equity capital markets business completely. The decision to close the loss-making division will lead to 200 job cuts, almost all in Asia. In its retail banking division, the bank said it has announced 2,000 job cuts in the last three months, and plans to axe a further 2,000 this year. The cuts would represent about 5% of the bank's 86,000 employees.
The bank also announced the departure of chief risk officer Richard Goulding and Jan Verplancke, chief information officer. The company said both were retiring from the company and would stay until successors were appointed.
