CEO, Standard Chartered Bank
Standard Chartered (STAN:LN) may be one of Britain's largest banks, but its chief executive, Peter Sands, spends more time focusing on the Far East—where Standard Chartered has most of its investments—than on the bank's home market. Sands moderated a session at Davos on the financial sector's future risks and the changing landscape of global capitalism. With its existing presence in leading emerging economies, Standard Chartered already understands how to serve fast-evolving markets. But Sands faces growing competition from major Western rivals that covet market share in developing countries, as well as from increasingly ambitious emerging-market banks. Speaking on three Davos panels, Sands will be among the most visible bankers at the conference.
