ITV Report - Top firm boss defends bank following spate of resignations

Departure Sign

A string of cases that have shone light on less savoury behaviour by senior staff.

ITV reports that Standard Chartered’s Europe boss has defended the banking giant’s work culture following a spate of recent resignations amid allegations of misconduct by senior staff.

Tracy Clarke, regional chief executive for Europe & Americas and head of its private bank, stressed that she has observed a “strong” and “inclusive” culture during her 32 years at the bank.

“I’ve been here a long time, as you know, and we have not got a toxic environment, and actually I think the culture at Standard Chartered remains one of our great strengths – I really do,” she told the Press Association.

Ms Clarke said that chief executive Bill Winters “leads from the front as far as conduct is concerned”.

“He’s put himself out there very personally, and as a management team it’s something in our respective parts of the business that we’ve all been very much focused on.“

It comes after a string of cases that have shone light on less savoury behaviour by senior staff.
