Financing and Securities Services will include all of Standard Chartered’s existing Securities Services activities including Custody, Clearing, Fiduciary and Fund Services, and Securities Lending, as well as all Portfolio Risk Management activities across Prime Services, Money Markets, Central Funding Desk, Credit Valuation Adjustment and the Modelling and Analytics Group.
