Standard Chartered considers splitting corporate, investment bank

Standard Chartered is considering splitting up its corporate, commercial and institutional banking segment, Bloomberg reports, citing unnamed sources.

A restructuring of the unit could lead to separating the operations of its investment bank from those of its corporate and commercial bank, according to Bloomberg.

The move from the London-based lender — which makes most of its money in Asia and the MENA region — could lead to job cuts, but no final decision has yet been made, Bloomberg reports.
