Standard Chartered Pakistan (Urdu: اسٹینڈرڈ چارٹرڈ بینک (پاکستان) لمیٹڈ) is a Pakistani banking and financial services company in Pakistan and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of British multinational bank Standard Chartered.

It is Pakistan's oldest and largest foreign commercial bank. Standard Chartered Pakistan currently employs over 2,000 staff at 40 branches in 10 different cities.[1]


The history of Standard Chartered in Pakistan dates back to 1863, when the Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China first established its operations in Karachi.

In 2006, Standard Chartered Bank acquired Pakistan's Union Bank. On 30 December 2006, Standard Chartered merged Union Bank with its own subsidiary, Standard Chartered Bank (Pakistan), to create Pakistan's sixth largest bank.[2][3][4]


Standard Chartered was named in FinCEN leak, published by Buzzfeed News and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). It had four suspicious transactions flagged.[5]
