At Standard Chartered, our purpose as an international bank is to drive commerce and prosperity through our unique diversity. Our heritage and values are expressed in our brand promise – Here for good. We are committed to promoting social and economic development in the markets we serve and proud to have grown with Malaysia for 147 years.

We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to realise their potential. Futuremakers by Standard Chartered is our global initiative to tackle inequality by promoting greater economic inclusion. Futuremakers supports disadvantaged young people, especially girls and people with visual impairments, to learn, earn and grow. Since its launch in 2019, Futuremakers programmes have reached more than 849,000 young people globally. In Malaysia, close to 25,000 beneficiaries were reached through these anchor programmes:

  • Goal: our global education programme for adolescent girls. Goal combines sports with life-skills training to empower girls with the confidence, knowledge and skills they need to be integral economic leaders in their families and communities
  • Digital Entrepreneurs: Our Digital Entrepreneurs programme is designed to prepare unemployed and underemployed graduates for meaningful employment in the digital economy through a digital readiness course and career mentorships
  • Financial Education: our employee-led programmes to develop the financial capabilities of youths and small businesses by enhancing their knowledge, skills and attitudes towards money
  • Employee volunteering: Giving back to the community is an integral part of the Bank’s DNA. Each employee is given three days of volunteering leave annually. We encourage our colleagues to volunteer our skills and expertise in the local communities
  • Environment: We are proud of our green initiatives to protect the environment. This year, more than 5 tonnes of waste were collected over regular beach clean-ups along the Selangor coast
