HSBC Africa

HSBC established a presence in South Africa post 1995. As an integrated and collaborative member of the Group, HSBC Africa provides clients’ global reach and capability with in-depth local knowledge. Our principal activity across the region is that of our Global Banking and Markets business.

The Business is managed out of the Regional Hub in Johannesburg, complimented through regional representative offices thereby ensuring our local relationship managers and product specialists tailor international products to our African based client needs. Our Commercial Banking business offers the same services to large local and international corporates.

The third activity within the African portfolio is the representative office of our Offshore personal bank, based in the Channel Islands, which services African-based Premier clients.

Throughout our history we have been where the growth is, connecting customers to opportunities. We enable businesses to thrive and economies to prosper, helping people fulfil their hopes and dreams and realise their ambitions. This is our role and purpose.
