Its operations lie predominantly in former British colonies, though over the past two decades it has now expanded operations into 70 countries and territories. Standard Chartered offers a full range of banking products to consumers, private clients and business, including an extensive Islamic banking operation.
On 31 December 2015 Standard Chartered controlled assets worth USD640.48 billion.

Standard Chartered and CommBank pull out of massive Carmichael coal mine
In August, two banks ended their involvement in Adani's massive proposed Carmichael coal mine project in Australia. The project, which has been championed by Prime Minister Tony Abbott, faces an uncertain future due to legal challenges as well as its problems in attracting finance. Australia's Commonwealth Bank ended its role as advisor to the project after months of sustained community pressure, followed days later by the UK's Standard Chartered, the project's leading advisor.
