HoHoHo: StanChart’s CEO is worse than our paper generals

In Banks, Emerging markets, Temasek on 05/10/2018 at 11:03 am

S’poreans have few good things to say about our paper generals and scholars: think SPH’s CEO and ex-SMRT’s CEO.

Well StanChart’s CEO, a true blue ang moh life long banker, makes these guys look good.

When Bill Winters became the Messiah CEO of StanChart in June 2015, the bank’s shares were around £10. Now they are around £6. He was brought in because the previous CEO had run the bank into the ground. The bank overextended, trying to take advantage of other banks’ problems. Unlike them it had a great time during the financial crisis.

Well Winters failed. The shares have dropped about 37%, while Bloomberg’s global banking index has gained 47%.

Ho Ho Ho.
