Provision in respect of legacy financial crime control and FX trading issues


Standard Chartered continues its discussions relating to the potential resolution of the previously disclosed investigation by the US authorities relating to historical violations of US sanctions laws and regulations.

Standard Chartered has received a decision notice from the UK Financial Conduct Authorityís Regulatory Decisions Committee (RDC) relating to the previously disclosed investigation by the Financial Conduct Authority concerning the groupís historical financial crime controls, and is considering its options in relation to this decision notice. The decision notice imposes a penalty of £102,163,200 (net of a 30% early settlement discount) on the group.

Standard Charteredís 2018 fourth quarter results will include a provision totalling USD900 million for potential penalties relating to the above US investigation and FCA decision, and for previously disclosed investigations relating to FX trading issues, including the January 2019 settlement announced last month. This provision reflects managementís current view of the appropriate level of provision. Resolution of the US investigation and of the FCA process might ultimately result in a different level of penalties.

Standard Chartered will be releasing its 2018 full year results on 26 February 2019.
