Located on the ground floor of the Capital Place Building office complex, the Thang Long branch is built with a modern, world-class design to provide clients with a differentiated and superior banking experience. It also offers an unrivalled level of convenience thanks to its strategic location right in the heart of Hanoi and close to shopping, dining, and entertainment centres inside Capital Place and in the proximity.
Harmander Mahal, head of Consumer, Private, and Business Banking for Vietnam and Asia Cluster Markets at Standard Chartered Bank said that “The country offers strong growth potential for retail banking given its growing middle-class populations and a high proportion of people who remain unbanked. Standard Chartered aspires to be the bank of choice for the affluent and emerging affluent.”
“Along with focusing on digital banking capabilities to allow clients to bank with us anytime and anywhere conveniently and securely, we continue to be well prepared for those who want to visit us physically. Customers can have confidence that we will deliver recommendations and solutions which meet their needs and risk appetites. Launching the Thang Long branch in a vibrant area enables us to extend our reach and offer world-class banking products and services to more of our target clients,” he added.

The new branch is part of Standard Chartered Vietnam’s retail banking strategy, which leverages digital capabilities, combined with its physical presence, to provide clients with an exceptional banking experience. Depending on their preference, clients can bank directly at branches or via digital banking platforms.
Following the launch of the Thang Long branch in Capital Place, the old Thang Long branch located on the 18th floor of Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower will suspend its operations and route all transactions to the new branch, effective from April 22. The bank also plans to centralise its operations in Hanoi by relocating its head office and two other existing facilities in the city to Capital Place in June, occupying the third floor of the building.
