I have had six employers (excluding advisory and consulting roles in another few), all of them banks and among them Standard Chartered Bank. SCB took me to the world. And hence the Bank has a special place in memory and fondness.
That fondness prompted me not to cash in the few shares of the bank that I had when I left. The share price continued a southward trajectory after that, losing over 75% of the value.
English premier league is dear to England and it’s natural for British based banks to be sponsors of one of the league teams.
Standard Chartered Bank picked Liverpool and stayed put. And now Liverpool is league champions.
Perhaps this is the reversal of fortunes. And it should be! It’s well deserved.
