2020 Final Dividend
On 25 February 2021, the directors of Standard Chartered PLC announced their recommendation to pay a final dividend for the year ended 31 December 2020 of 9 US cents per ordinary share.

Annual General Meeting 2021
In light of the prevailing government guidelines on public gatherings, we are proposing to host our AGM as a combined physical and electronic meeting. Shareholders will not be permitted physical entry into the AGM venue. This ensures that the health and safety of our shareholders, colleagues and other stakeholders is protected.
The AGM will take place at our head office, 1 Basinghall Avenue, London EC2V 5DD on Wednesday 12 May 2021 at 11.00am UK time (6.00pm Hong Kong time) and shareholders will be able to attend the AGM electronically via a live web-portal hosted by Lumi. Details of how to join the meeting and the web-portal can be found on pages 24 and 25 of the Notice of AGM.
Within the Lumi web-portal, shareholders will be able to view a live video feed of the AGM, submit voting instructions and questions in writing or ask them through an audio line on the day. Questions can be submitted in advance of the meeting by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Given the evolving nature of the situation, the format of the AGM may change following the publication of the Notice of AGM. We will update our shareholders as soon as reasonably possible regarding any such change. As such, please monitor our website sc.com/agm and regulatory news services for any updates.
