Important Information regarding Standard Chartered PLC's (the "Company's") 2020 Annual General Meeting ("AGM")

As announced on 1 April 2020, the Company's AGM will take place at our London head office, 1 Basinghall Avenue, London, EC2V 5DD, rather than at etc.venues, St.Paul's. The date and time of our AGM will remain 11:00am London time (6:00pm Hong Kong time) on Wednesday 6 May 2020.

We have closely monitored the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) in the United Kingdom and continue to request shareholders not to attend the AGM and instead vote in advance no later than 11:00am London time (6:00pm Hong Kong time) on 4 May 2020. This is in line with UK Government advice regarding the permitted size of gatherings. Shareholders who attempt to attend the meeting will not be permitted entry. We intend to host a retail shareholder event later in the year where shareholders will be able to ask the Board questions.

The AGM will be held as a purely procedural meeting, covering only the formal business. As such, no live broadcast of the AGM will be made available. A message from the Group Chairman will be uploaded to our website at sc.com/en/investors/events-and-presentations/agm/ after the meeting.

As stated within the Notice of AGM 2020, shareholders are encouraged to submit questions for the Board in advance of the meeting to [email protected]. We will respond directly to any questions received.
