    African generational tensions regarding the transfer of wealth
    As directors of trust companies forming part of Africa’s largest bank by assets, with a presence in 19 African countries, it is fair for us to say that we have significant experience implementing estate and succession plans for families with African connections. Whilst we absolutely acknowledge that each family is unique, as are their estate and succession planning needs, we do still see threads of commonality when we are approached by families wishing to establish fiduciary structures.

Correspondent banks

A correspondent bank is a third-party bank used by the sending and beneficiary bank when it does not have direct relationships needed to complete payments and transfers. They are essential to the global payment system as brokers for transactions.

 It is important to note that a correspondent bank may levy its own charges in addition to any fees charged by Standard Bank. You may opt for the sender or the beneficiary of the transfer to pay transfer charges  however, a correspondent bank may, at it's own discretion, deduct its charges from  remitted funds, even if you selected to pay all fees upfront.

You can find the relevant routing information on our correspondent banks page on our routing information page.
