The HSBC Group

Established in 1865 to finance the growing trade between China and Europe, HSBC has become one of the largest financial services organisations in the world. Growing organically and through strategic acquisitions, the Group consists of many long-established local banks. This unique history has provided us with an international network extending across 6,900 offices in 80 countries and territories, enabling us to combine in-depth local knowledge with extensive global connectivity and expertise.

As a fully integrated Group, we manage all our businesses for sustainable success. To do this, we focus on:

  • risk: maintaining financial strength through high capital ratios, liquid balance sheets, low loan to deposit ratios and diversified income streams
  • operating with the utmost integrity, fidelity and respect
  • managing long-term mutually-beneficial relationships with all stakeholders
  • investing in the societies and communities on which our business depends

We are and aim to always be, the world’s local bank.
