CONFIRMED: Standard Chartered is axing 15,000 jobs wants to raise $5.1 billion

Published by Business Insider on Tue, 03 Nov 2015

Standard Chartered just confirmed its plans to raise around $5.1bn (3.3bn) and around 15,000 jobs in a bid to shore up its balance sheet amid the China and emerging markets slowdown.It also plans to identify and reduce or exit around $100 billion in underperforming or risky assets.The UK listed bank derives 90% of its profits from Asia and originally reports in US dollars.Standard Chartered said in its interim management statement that its third quarter was"disappointing" after posting a $139 millionoperating loss for the three months to the end of September.One year ago, it made a profit of $1.5 billion.The business environment in our markets remains challenging and our recent performance is disappointing. Today we have announced a strategy that makes big changes to how we will manage ourselves going forward," saidBill Winters, Group Chief Executive of Standard Chartered."We are positioning the Group for improved return on equity on a strengthened capital base. We will execute as quickly as possible to get through this transition phase, start delivering improved performance, and ensure our people are focused on providing value to our clients across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.Back in March, the emerging markets bank tried to calm investors' nerves and get the banking behemoth back to profitability, bya range of cost cutting measures. It stated that it planned to reduce headcount and andexit "15 underperforming and non-strategic businesses" and make a change to its leadership.Its strategy plan included replacing Standard Chartered's former CEO Peter Sands with Bill Winters, the man who was famously sacked by Jamie Dimon for flagging up the massive trading risks JPMorgan was taking years ago.On October 29,Bloomberg reported thatthe amount in question for capital raising would run to at least $4 billion and could run to $8 billion.As a bank with colossal exposure to developing economies in Asia, it's felt the slowdown of the region and emerging markets more generally. Bloomberg added that thedecision over whether to raise the capital cameafter the Bank of England published results from its latest round of stress tests are published at the beginning of September.Join the conversation about this storyNOW WATCH: Donald Trump's 'strange' morning habit tells you everything you need to know about him
