Banking group Standard Chartered has opened its Greater Bay Area (GBA) centre as it commits to contribute to the growth of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao GBA, reports our sister publication, International Adviser.

The GBA centre comprises its banking centre and its support network to provide a full range of banking solutions for clients in the region.

More than 700 employees are now based in the GBA Centre, and the number is expected to exceed 1,600 by 2023.
Anthony Lin, chief executive of Greater Bay Area at Standard Chartered, said: “Bringing businesses, functions and innovation under one roof at the GBA centre solidifies our position as the ‘Go-to Bank’ in GBA, making banking faster and better for our clients.

“The rapid development of the GBA has deepened the financial cooperation within the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao GBA. The rising inbound and outbound trade and investment flows open up greater opportunities to expand the regional financial ecosystem.

“As one of the first banks offering wealth management connect services, our clients are able to leverage our global footprint and business expertise to fulfil cross-border banking needs.”
