Established in 1865 to finance the growing trade between China and Europe, HSBC has grown to one of the largest trade services organisations in the world. We have more relationships with suppliers and buyers than any other trade services institution and are able to offer greater trade efficiency, speed and cost effectiveness, especially when counterparties bank with us on both sides.

Combining our global expertise and connectivity with local knowledge, our African team takes a consultative approach to understand our clients’ business and create a full range of tailored solutions to meet their needs. Through advanced ITS-enabled technology, we enable importers and exporters to:

  • streamline trade processes
  • reduce trade cycles
  • automate supply chains
  • gain greater control
  • cut costs

As part of a global network of dedicated trade centres, our local team facilitates trade across the African continent, with key markets including Angola; Ethiopia; Ghana; Kenya; Nigeria; Uganda; South Africa and Tanzania
