LONDON (Reuters) – London-based bank Standard Chartered <STAN.L> and Ant Financial, the payment affiliate of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd <BABA.N> have agreed to collaborate in countries along China’s ‘Belt & Road’ strategic initiative.

StanChart said on Monday the two companies will work to increase access to financial services in countries along the route, without giving details on how the partnership will work.
