1 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Standard Chartered Bank partners Singapore Management University to establish innovation lab The Bank will provide US$1 million annually for R&D Singapore, 29 May 2006 Standard Chartered Bank and Singapore Management University (SMU) are collaborating to establish an innovation laboratory. The Standard Chartered Bank - Singapore Management University Innovation Centre (Innovation Centre) will conduct leading-edge research and development in business and financial products, services and technology for the Bank s global network. Standard Chartered will provide an annual funding of US$1 million for the Innovation Centre which will go towards research work undertaken by project teams comprising SMU faculty and students, and SCB staff. These teams will work in close consultation with senior Standard Chartered executives to conduct applied business and technology research that is both customer-driven and commercially relevant. The 90-metre square Innovation Centre, located in the School of Information Systems at SMU, will be managed jointly by Standard Chartered Bank and SMU. 1

2 Standard Chartered recognises that innovation is crucial in answering the demands of the competitive banking environment as well as to outserve its customers with innovative financial solutions. This is the first time that a global bank has established a partnership with a Singapore university to build and staff an innovation centre on campus. The Innovation Centre creates the perfect environment for students to hone their commercial skills and develop innovative solutions in response to real life business scenarios and challenges. Jan Verplancke, Chief Information Officer & Group Head for Group Technology & Operations said: The future of banking is in Asia and one of the drivers of this future is innovation. Standard Chartered is putting its global innovation centre in Singapore working with SMU, which has quickly established a reputation in this area. SMU faculty and students have exhibited the characteristics that we find in our experience to be essential for innovation openness, ambition and the courage to challenge convention. Singapore has great educational institutions with many talented students. SMU as an institution has a great approach to harnessing that talent. Standard Chartered Bank and SMU both believe that the intersection of business challenges, research advances, technology development and diverse talent recruitment creates the ideal environment for innovation. The Innovation Centre is ideally positioned to take advantage of this opportunity, and was created with the belief that successful and replicable innovation is a key driver of organic business growth by generating significant differentiation and sustainable competitive advantage for corporations. 2

3 Professor Howard Hunter, President, Singapore Management University: Innovation in consumer banking is one of the most important elements for any financial institution to stay competitive. SMU, known for its strong grounding in finance and cross-discipline business innovation, will provide access to the rich intellectual capital and world-class research expertise of its faculty and students in spearheading research & development for Standard Chartered Bank. SMU undergraduates who have achieved a high level of maturity in their analysis of the banking environment through their rigorous academic training and internship experiences will provide a deep resource for fresh ideas. I believe that they will make significant contributions to this strategic partnership. The synergistic partnership aims to leverage key strengths from both organisations, with Standard Chartered Bank providing business propositions, key insights into customers requirements and commercial expertise. SMU s Faculty and student body, highly trained in disciplines ranging from business management, accountancy, information systems, to economics and social sciences, offer a natural opportunity for a highly complementary strategic partnership in the search for successful innovation. The SMU curriculum, together with Standard Chartered Bank s business focus, creates a unique opportunity to develop and apply innovations, whereas the Innovation Centre provides a powerful setting for SMU s business and technology students and Faculty to tightly integrate their research activity with each other and with Standard Chartered Bank s business units. 3

4 This programme underscores Standard Chartered Bank s commitment and belief in talent development by creating opportunities to groom future talent. Further, Standard Chartered Bank and SMU have jointly launched the Young Stars Programme in order to identify and attract top minds for early employment at Standard Chartered Bank. -- ENDS For more information, please contact: Joanna Ong Corporate Affairs, Singapore Standard Chartered Bank DID: Mr Chua Loo Lin Senior Manager Office of Corporate Communications Singapore Management University DID: /Mobile:
