The name was changed to Grindlays Christian & Mathew’s in 1839, which again changed to Grindlays & Co. in 1853. The first branch opened in India, at Church Lane, Calcutta in 1854 and in 1864 Grindlays & Co. opened Indian branches autonomous from London. They were acquired by National Provincial Bank Limited in 1924. National Bank of India absorbed Grindlays & Co. n 1958 and began to operate as National & Grindlays Bank Ltd. History of Standard & Chartered Bank Standard Chartered Bank has a history about 150 years. The name “Standard stems from the two original banks from which it was founded – the “Chartered Bank” of India, Australia and China and the “Standard Bank” of British and South Africa. The “Chartered Bank” was established in 1853 by a Royal Charter granted by Queen Victoria of England. The main person behind the Chartered Bank was a Scot, James Wilson who had also started “The Economist” still one of the most eminent publications today.
He foresaw the advantage of financing the working trade links with the areas in the east, which no other financial in was doing at that time. The “Standard Bank” was found by another Scot, John Peterson in 1862. He immigrated to Cap Province in South Africa and became a successful merchant before founding “The Eastern Province Herald” which is still published today. Coming from a similar background as Wilson, he also saw great trading possibilities between Europe and his adopted country, and together with local business interest he founded the bank. The two banks expanded and proposed with time and decided to merge in 1969. n January 30, 1970 the new shares of the Standard and Chartered Banking Group Limited were listed in the London Stock Exchange. The original building of the Chartered Bank at 38 Bishop Gate was demolished in June 1980 and new headquarters of the Standard Chartered Bank PLC was opened on the same city by Queen Elizabeth II on March 20, 1986. Becoming stronger after the merger, Standard Chartered Bank embarked upon serious expansion in Europe and United States. The Standard Chartered Merchant Bank was built up from a number of acquisitions made during the 1990s.

Standard Chartered Grindlays Bank: The Acquisition Standard Chartered Bank has taken advantage of the expansion opportunities. Buying Grindlays from ANZ now propels it from number five to number one among international banks in India, with some choice extra footholds in the Middle East. At 1. 3 billion U. S. ollars, it is hard to complaint that Standard Chartered has overpaid. The financial ease is less compelling for ANZ shareholders, as there are advantages to getting out of a strategically peripheral business. This acquisition of Grindlays Bank has added 6000 employees and 4 countries to Standard Chartered’s existing network of 27000 employees and 570 offices in 50 countries. The end result is that Standard Chartered, which went into the 1997 Asian Crisis with strong business in Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia, emerges with additional core markets in India and Thailand.
The deal has made Standard Chartered the largest foreign bank by assets in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh and the second largest in Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates.
