Stanbic Bank was adopted as a trading name in 1992, when the Standard Bank Group, then known as Standard Bank Investment Corporation, acquired the African operations of ANZ Grindlays Bank. The new name was adopted to avoid confusion with the Standard Bank's British former parent bank, Standard Chartered Bank, which continued to operate in Africa.
The Standard Bank Group also trades as Standard Bank in Namibia, Swaziland, South Africa, Lesotho, Mauritius, Angola and Mozambique. In Madagascar, the group is represented by Union Commercial Bank.
In September 2012, Stanbic Bank Tanzania secured financing worth $3 billion for Mchuchuma Iron Ore and Liganga Coal mining project in the Ludewa district of the newly created region of Njombe in southwestern Tanzania.
In 2015 Stanbic Bank was involved in a fraud scandal involving money transfers from the Swedish embassy to private accounts of a former embassy employee.
