The name Standard Chartered originates from two banks from which it was formed. The two banks are The Standard Bank of British South Africa and The Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China. The merger between these two banks took place in 1969.

The Chartered Bank started its operations in Kolkata in 1858. During that period, Kolkata was the most important city and trade centre in India. In 1869, the bank shifted its operations to Mumbai as the city became the principal trade centre of India. At present, the branches and sub-branches of Standard Chartered Bank are controlled from Mumbai though Kolkata remains as a major trade and financial centre. At present, Standard Chartered Bank is the biggest foreign bank in India.
