Standard Chartered Interview
05 Aug, 2011
The banking industry has practically dominated the business pages of the world’s media for the last few years, since the beginning of the global economic downturn. The industry is complex and vast, with far-reaching regulatory and legal implications and issues to navigate. This month, Lawyer Monthly benefits from an exclusive one to one interview with major figure in the global banking industry, CEO Europe of Standard Chartered, Richard Holmes, to gain an insight into the world of banking, as well as looking at the fantastic charity work that this major bank is known for. Lawyer Monthly’s Claire Middleton spoke to Richard prior to his participation (for the fourth time!) in a very special event in London City. This was The Standard Chartered Great City Race, a race around the Square Mile between 6,500 runners from approximately 400 companies, all in aid of the global sight restoration initiative, Seeing is Believing. The event was also attended by one of the initiative’s ambassadors, Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
