Find Banking and Financial Services expertise in South Africa


South Africa has a sophisticated banking sector and well-established capital markets. The World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report (2011-12) rated it second in the world for the soundness of its banks, ranking its healthy financial sector below only Canada. The four largest banks are ABSA (the Amalgamated Bank of South Africa), Standard Bank, Nedbank and FirstRand Bank. South African banks are strategically positioned in Africa and prevalent internationally, so aside from the established presence in the domestic markets, they have quickly and profitably expanded into African markets and beyond, since the ending of international economic sanctions in the 1990s. This advantageous market success has led to further international interest. Barclays Bank, one of the biggest banks in the world, became the main shareholder of ABSA in 2005; the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (CBCs) acquired a 20% stake in Standard Bank in 2007.
