Johannesburg, 23 June 2021 –Standard Bank Group, Africa’s largest bank by assets, is proud to announce that it has been identified as Top Wealth Manager for the Wealthy Executive and Successful Entrepreneur in the Intellidex Top Private Banks and Wealth Managers 2021 survey.

Launched in 2012, the Intellidex Top Private Banks & Wealth Managers survey is based on a comprehensive survey of the wealth managers and private banks as well as their clients, with high emphasis placed on client rankings of their firms across an extensive list of categories.

Both the awards received by Standard Bank this year fall in the archetype category. The archetype awards honour firms that provide service excellence to specific client segments. According to Intellidex: “The winners of the archetype awards are extremely important because they reflect which firms cater best to different market segments, enabling investors to select the firm that best suits their needs.”

Standard Bank was also placed as runner-up in the following categories:

  • Top Private Bank
  • Top Wealth Manager 
  • People’s Choice for Best Private Bank.


“We are committed to delivering value and proactively engaging with our clients, especially because of the uncertainty in the markets – our clients need expert knowledge that they can trust. This industry recognition demonstrates the level of excellence in which our teams deliver our services to our clients,” says Sanah Gumede, Head of Wealth and Investment at Standard Bank South Africa.

This is the second year in which Standard Bank has been named by Intellidex as Top Wealth Manager for the Wealthy Executive. The bank was named Top Wealth Manager for Internationally Wealthy Families in 2015, 2017 and 2020 respectively.

“We provide clients with holistic solutions to meet their onshore and offshore financial needs. Together we will craft a wealth management strategy that ensures that they achieve their desired lifestyle and that the generational needs of their families are taken care of,” Gumede says.

“We continue to search for attractive investment opportunities for our clients. Our focus is on finding out what matters most to them, by understanding the dreams, goals and ambitions they have for themselves and their families,” she concludes.
