Stanbic IBTC Exits Bureau De Change Operation
Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc has relinquished its Bureau de Change license, thereby exiting the business effectively January 2021.

Chidi Okezie, its company secretary Wednesday said the discontinuation of operations of the BDC business was driven by changes in regulations.

The statement read in part: “Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC (“Stanbic IBTC” or “the Company”), wishes to announce that its
Bureau De Change Subsidiary, Stanbic IBTC Bureau De Change Limited (‘Stanbic IBTC BDC’) has discontinued its Bureau de Change business with effect from 01 January 2021 by relinquishing its operating license.

“The discontinuation of operations of the BDC business was primarily driven by changes in regulations, which now affords customers with the opportunity of purchasing foreign exchange (PTA and BTA) directly from Stanbic IBTC Bank at any of its branches nationwide.

The intention is to repurpose this subsidiary for other business venture in the near future, and stakeholders would be duly notified when all engagements have been concluded in this regard.

Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, a member of Standard Bank Group, is a full-service financial services group with a clear focus on three main business pillars – Corporate and Investment Banking, Personal and Business Banking and Wealth Management.

The group’s largest shareholder is the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), the world’s largest bank, with a 20.1 per cent shareholding. Also, Standard Bank Group and ICBC share a strategic partnership that facilitates trade deals between Africa, China and select emerging markets.
