All of us have dreams for our future.
Big ones, small ones, personal ones and ones that could shape the world.
At Standard Bank, our dream is that everyone’s dreams can be real. We can work together. We can find solutions. And we can prove that with the right help, It Can Be.
We know you’re driving less during lockdown. That’s why we’re automatically giving you 25% back on your car insurance premiums for the duration of the lockdown.
Right now, making sure your business has an online presence just makes sense. That’s why we’re making it easy for you to setup and start selling your services.
Our Trade and International Payments team have opened up their full services for waiving certain fees, extending extra finance, and offering expertise to help you find new markets.
Because the lockdown is forcing all of us to live more and more online, DigiME’s Strong Authentication is more important than ever as it keeps your assets and identity safe.
You may be stuck inside, but you can still make sure your loved ones are looked after by sending them money. All they need is a valid South African cellphone number.
You can pay suppliers and employees without leaving home. Send money to their cellphones directly from your business account.
You’ve got access to a banker all day and all night, from the comfort of your couch, through any channel that best suits you.
To help keep you safe during the lockdown, we’ve waived the R9 Saswitch fee for using other bank’s ATMs. So you can use the one that is closest to you.
We’ve pledged R10 million to the Solidarity Fund, which has been set up to help the most vulnerable cope with COVID-19.
It Can Be.
Africa is a continent of dreamers and doers; people who connect to brands that can help them realise their ambitions and put them at the centre of the discussion. They want a brand to believe in them, inspire them and journey with them. Standard Bank also believes that dreams matter, because they fuel our growth.
It’s the place where these two dreamers meet that has driven the repositioning of Standard Bank from “Moving forward” to “It Can Be” – a promise of hope, change and optimism.
We are not rebranding – this would entail changing our brand name and logo, which we are not. The launch of Standard Bank’s new positioning and tagline does not halt the many efforts that have been put in place to assist our customers during this period. All credit and loan relief, and all safety measures, implemented by Standard Bank remain in place. Doing meaningful things for our customers and the countries in which we operate remains our top priority.
In addition, now is the time to begin a narrative of hope, of optimism. Because ‘It Can Be’ is a celebration of the human spirit, of the belief in our dreams, there is no better time to introduce this new positive message as encouragement to keep going.
