Johannesburg - Standard Chartered said it has expanded its securities services business into South Africa, offering back office management to overseas investors looking to trade on stock exchanges around the fast-growing continent.

The bank’s global securities services business is managing assets worth over $800bn and operates in 10 other African countries such as Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius and Uganda, the bank said.
