Standard Chartered is a UK registered emerging market bank. It has a large presence in Asia, South East Asia, Middle East and Africa and branch network in the USA. While the head office is in the UK, it does not have branch network in Europe, as its main focus is on emerging markets not the OECD countries. In fact, over 60 per cent of its earnings originate from the South East Asian countries, of which Hong Kong accounts for over 30 per cent share. The rest of the earnings come from other areas, i.e. Africa, Middle East and the Americas.
Its commitment to provide services of the highest quality grows with time. Being an emerging market bank, wide presence in some of the very difficult and diverse markets, it is well positioned to judge the market realities in these parts of the world.

Note: To calculate your monthly contribution amount on any financing amount not included in Table 1, simply multiply the same amount by the factor correlating to the desired tenor of financing as shown in Table 2 below.
Example: You want to calculate the monthly contribution on the financing amount of Rs. 546,139 payable over 5 years. Which is to say, Financing Amount x 5 Years Factor = Rs.546,139 x 0.02762 = Rs.15,084.36 per month.
